Fort Wayne City Councilman Mitch Harper has spoken twice in Council meetings about the City not providing financial statements to the Council as they have been asking for. Â The first requests were made formally during the budget hearings when Deputy Mayor Greg Purcell and Controller Pat Roller were before the Council. Â About two months ago, the Council passed an ordinance making it a legal requirement for the Administration to provide these statements on a monthly basis to the Council.
This afternoon, I was sent copies of the statements that had just been delivered to the City Council. Â I am not sure if they have received them, depends on how they were delivered. Â Once I can verify they’ve had a chance to look at them, I’ll post a copy here. Â I think the Council will probably want to be doing some refining, which was expected. Â The main thing is, they have the information and according to Deputy Mayor Greg Purcell, this should now become a regular thing.
