Since 2005 there has been a steady improvement in the reporting of Cudahy's financial information. The data that is provided to our auditors has been more efficiently prepared and is more accurate. As a result, the time spent on the audits has been reduced. In addition, we have been making every effort to implement the recommendations that our auditing firm has suggested, to make our financials better reflect reality. This gives the added benefit of providing a snapshot view of revenue and expenses at any given time, as well as assisting our budgeting process for the next year. It is our intention to continue to improve all aspects of our financial reporting. In this way, the Mayor, the Council, Committee Members and our citizens will have financials that accurately tell them what is happening in Cudahy.
