PETITION FOR INDEPENDENT OUTSIDE FORENSIC AUDIT OF THE CITY OF DANVILLE ILLINOIS
Taxpayers have a right and, some say, a responsibility to see how their municipality is spending and saving. Citizens must be informed and involved in their local government including its budget, and whether it has borrowed from itself to balance the books
The taxpayers of the city of Danville Illinois ask that the office of Vermilion County States Attorney conduct an independent outside forensic audit of the spending of public funds by the office of the Mayor and the Danville city council. We ask for this audit out of concerns that public funds are being used in a manner and for uses that funds were not allocated and out of a general loss of confidence and fear of malfeasance. We are of the opinion that our voice has been lost in the rush to spend on projects that we have little to no opportunity to either oppose or endorse and that the best interest of the community has been pushed aside for personal agendas.
