Councillor appointed as representative for audit

Council appointed Dan McSkimming as the member of council to participate in the Auditor General for Local Government (AGLG) audit.

At the June 27 City Council meeting, council appointed Dan McSkimming as the member of council to participate in the Auditor General for Local Government (AGLG) audit.

The AGLG is auditing the City of Fernie, along with three other municipalities, in regards to human resource practices in smaller governments. A team of three auditors will be observing the City of Fernie’s practices from June 27 until July 8.

“Rather than administration providing the AGLG with the name of a Councillor to participate in an interview as part of the audit process, staff felt it was more appropriate to provide all of Council with the opportunity to discuss the matter and to allow them to select a Council member by resolution,” read Chief Administrative Officer Jim Hendricks from a staff report.

The motion to appoint McSkimming was made by Councillor Joe Warshawsky and seconded by Councillor Jon Levesque. It passed unopposed.

Mayor Mary Giuliano and various City of Fernie staff will also be participating in the audit.
