Once again the city commission members have decided to hide out in the captain's quarters and allow our still-rudderless ship to continue to sail in circles. With a less-than-glowing audit of city finances on the table, what does the commission do? They hire the auditor that created the report as a consultant answerable only to the commission members and, in reality, to no one, because as a consultant, instead of a city employee, any recommendations that he makes are nothing more than mere suggestions for the direction our rudderless ship should go in. Talk about letting us sail wherever the wind blows!
The citizens of Danville deserve to have more accountability, especially when it comes to their hard-earned dollars. We deserve a full-time financial manager. The city commission has already proven it is not capable of handling the job, and this consultant's word has already been shown to carry little weight with them.
