According to an article in today’s New Haven Register, the state Board of Accountancy has expanded its investigation of North Haven’s former auditing firm, Levitsky & Berney, to include three municipalities in addition to West Haven.
Is North Haven one of these three municipalities? If not, it should be. And, according to the article, the Board’s counsel, Rebecca Adams, suggests that each town appoint a contact person for her to deal with throughout the investigation. The first compliance meeting with the auditing firm is scheduled for sometime in December, so this is something that the new First Selectwoman, Janet McCarty, should do.
It cannot be someone from the finance department, because it is overseen by a former Levitsky & Berney auditor (this is a conflict of interest issue, not an accusation; I think the world of Ed Swinkoski). And it should not be anyone who had any responsibility of oversight, such as a Board of Finance member.
