Last week, WTOC reported that former Savannah City Manager Rochelle Small-Toney found a new job in North Carolina.
It drew questions about her old job here in Savannah. One of the big questions was after Small-Toney resigned, there was a call for an audit to be performed, which is standard procedure when a CEO leaves a company, or in this case a head of government.
The audit was performed by an independent firm who reviewed Small-Toney's procedural practices and how she followed city policy. The firm didn't find anything that wasn't already made public, like travel expense issues and two instances where a contract and purchase order were approved without required city council approval.
No big surprises were revealed, at least for alderman Van Johnson, who requested the audit.
"Those issues have been addressed, time and time again, and it dealt with what it was supposed to do. It was supposed to specify facts," Johnson said. "So this was not requested for anything on the former city manager. It was sound business practice to make sure we knew where our organization was at the time of the transition."
There is also another much talked about audit still underway. The city manager's office told WTOC Tuesday morning they have still not received anything from the FBI on the audit of police report complaints, which Internal Affairs has already reviewed.
