Abramson Responds To Auditor's Report

by Gabe Bullard

Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson says changes to metro government are underway following a report from the State Auditor.

The report found dozens of weaknesses in fund management, contract awarding and in several departments, including Metro Corrections and Animal Services. Abramson says changes have already been made in those areas.

The audit also cited a lack of training and experience among business managers and directors. Abramson again says those issues are being resolved by the government's financial staff.

"They've been meeting weekly with the business managers. They've been meeting monthly with the directors and managers to ensure that all folks understand the rules and procedures they have to follow."

Abramson says the audit is unlikely to change the city's hiring and promoting practices.
