SOUTH WHITLEY â€” After numerous meetings where budget numbers and appropriation reports were the topic of tense discussion, South Whitley leaders had positive comments at Tuesdayâ€™s Town Council meeting.
â€śThere are no foreseeable problems,â€ť said Clerk-Treasurer Bob Gould. â€śWe are looking really good. All of our accounts show positive in the appropriations report.â€ť
Town Council President Tony Starkey asked Gould in previous meetings to give extensive explanations on budget line items and spending categories.
â€śYouâ€™ve made a lot of progress here,â€ť Starkey said. â€śThis is good to see. Iâ€™m glad we are seeing things move in the right direction.â€ť
After a state audit report brought some of the townâ€™s practices into question, Gould and Starkey worked to address each issue the State Board of Accounts reported.
â€śIâ€™ve tried to do what theyâ€™ve asked me to do,â€ť said Gould. â€śWeâ€™ve made some changes and fixed some of the things mentioned in the report.â€ť
