Zinkin: "Town Balks At Providing Fiscal Year 2016 Financial Results Before Election"

"On April 2, 2016, Councilman Burns and I placed on the advanced agenda the need for a Study Session on Aug. 4, 2016. The purpose of the session was to discuss the end of the fiscal year financials. The fiscal year ends on June 30, and we thought that 5 weeks would be sufficient time to prepare this report.

When this item was placed on the future agenda, there was not one word from the Town Manager (Greg Caton) or any other staffer that this timeline was unrealistic. In fact, not only was nothing said at the meeting, there has been nothing said in the interim....that is, up until now.

I am sending you this email chain, which is a public document, in hopes that you might assist me and the People of Oro Valley in getting this information in time for the upcoming election. As you know, ballots go out Aug. 3 and many people will have voted by mid August. Maybe to power of the media can help get the information to the People.

Thank you,
Mike Zinkin
Oro Valley Town Council Member
