City of Colonial Heights Audit Statement
The City of Colonial Heights audit for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2022 is pending. The major factors for the delay of the audit are the implementation of a new financial system and vacancies in various important positions related to the audit: the Director of Finance (vacant for a significant portion of FY 21-22) and the Deputy Director of Finance. The City of Colonial Heights finance team and auditors are working diligently to complete the audit report. Our estimated date of completion for the audit report is February 28, 2023.
