(Victorville) – The City of Victorville received word Monday that the newly seated grand jury plans to continue a probe into City operations that was started two years ago.
The City indicated in a press release late Tuesday that they were informed by letter from the grand jury that Harvey M. Rose Associates, LLC has been hired to conduct a performance and compliance audit of the operations, accounts and records of the City of Victorville and the Victor Valley Economic Development Authority.
According to the letter it is intended to complement a forensic audit performed by Kessler International. The City has not been made privy to any report completed by Kessler International and the previous Grand Jury made no mention of Victorville in its annual report.
“Inasmuch as the investigation was never concluded we are hopeful the work to be done by Harvey M. Rose Associates, LLC and the 2011-2012 San Bernardino County Grand Jury will finally conclude this investigation with a public report. The City and its employees stand ready to fully participate and assist in any way in the completion of this investigation,” the City stated in its press release.
