Mission Statement

To advance open and accountable government through accurate, independent, and objective audits and investigations that seek to improve the economy, efficiency, and effectiveness of City government.


Through performance audits, financial audits, and special investigations, the Office of the City Auditor provides essential information to assist the City Council in its decision-making process. The Office of the City Auditor also provides valuable information to City management and the general public. Our mission is to independently assess and report on City operations and services while providing objective and technically correct information.

The Office of the City Auditor is an independent office that reports to the City Council's Audit Committee.
