Through its neutrality and professionalism, the Office of the Auditor General serves as a reference for the City Council and the citizens by disseminating fair and transparent information on the governance and management of the City and its organizations. The term of office is seven (7) years, and the minimum budget is defined by the Cities and Towns Act.
