Performance audits are designed to determine whether government programs and activities are meeting stated goals and objectives and to determine if the city is performing in the most economic and efficient manner possible. The Department of Fiscal Services has set and maintained a standard of excellence, and staff is to be commended. They are well-deserving of this prestigious honor." City Manager, Tim Morales
