The Annual Audit Committee convenes to “kick the tires” on the annual city audit before it reaches the City Commission. The committee challenges the findings and assumptions of the annual independent audit as an exercise to bring greater accountability and transparency to your public finances. The Audit Committee also meets periodically to review and approve Downtown Façade Improvement Revolving Loan Fund requests.
Annually following the city’s annual independent audit; typically, during May or June.
*Terms are indefinite; members serve by appointment of the Mayor at the pleasure of the Governing Body.
Public Meeting Policy
All meetings of the City Commission and its advisory boards, commissions, and committees are open, public meetings. In accordance with the Kansas Open Meetings Act (KOMA), all meetings will be announced publicly and an agenda available in a lawful time frame prior to the meeting. Members of the public are welcome and encouraged to attend.
For more information on KOMA and KORA, visit the Kansas Attorney General’s website.
The success of local government ultimately depends on the willingness of well-informed, engaged individuals to step into leadership roles to help advise or guide policy on city goals, operations, and resources. Serving on an advisory committee is an excellent way to serve your community, become more involved and informed about your local government, and see if you’re interested in the commitment to serve as a Governing Body member.
