Andy Cromer of Arledge & Associates, P.C., the Certified Public Accountants who did the audit for the City of Ponca City for Fiscal Year 2016-17, had nothing but good things to say Monday night as he presented the firm’s audit report to City Commissioners.

Overall, the city received an “Unmodified Opinion,” which was formerly referred to as an “Unqualified Opinion.” The terms mean auditors found nothing amiss in Ponca City’s financial records for  the fiscal  year.

Cromer said the records were neutral, consistent and clear, and there were no difficulties working with city staff memebers in completing the audit.

Before commissioners voted to accept the audit report,  Mayor Homer Nicholson thanked and congratulated Finance Director Marc LaBossiere, City Controller Pamela Jones, and Shane Becker, General Ledger Accountant for their work.

The audit also included the financial records of Ponca City Utility Authority.

Copies of the audit are available for the public to view at the Ponca City Library and in the City Clerk’s office during normal business hours.
