State Auditor Crit Luallen to appear before joint meeting of Metro Council Committees on Monday, April 26th

Louisville – State Auditor Crit Luallen will appear before a first ever joint meeting of Metro Council Committees to discuss her recent findings of Metro Louisville‘s 2009 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.

The Joint Committee Meeting of the Government Accountability and Oversight and the Budget will take place at 4:00pm on Monday, April 26th in Council Chambers.

“Committee members are ready to hear and learn the details of the findings of this report and understand the criteria used as the basis for it,” says Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh (D-9) who chairs the Government Accountability Committee. “Our job as overseer of taxpayer money is to understand the findings and be confident that steps are taken to correct the concerns which have been raised.”

“The Metro Council is a little more than a month away from reviewing next year’s operating and capital budgets,” says Councilman Jim King (D-10) who chairs the Budget Committee. “Our Committee wants to assure every taxpayer that money is being used wisely, so I know this report will be closely reviewed.”

The meeting will be carried live on Metro TV Insight Cable Channel 25. It will also be streamed live on the Metro Council’s Home Page. Go to and click on the “Watch Meetings Online” icon.
