Overview: Martin Starnes & Associates, CPA's, P.A. has been the Town's external auditor since FY 2007-08 and have provided consistent and responsive services and competitive pricing throughout their tenure. In June of 2017, Council awarded the Audit Services Contract for FY 2016-17 to Martin Starnes after a Request for Proposals (RFP) process. The Contract allows four one-year contract extensions. This extension would be the third one-year extension. Adopting the resolution would authorize the Mayor to execute an extension to our contract with Martin Starnes & Associates, CPAs, P.A. to conduct the annual audit for the 2019-20 fiscal year.
