An independent auditor's report found accounting errors and other financial problems for the city of Porterdale.

Council listened to an audit presentation from Clifton, Lipford, Hardison & Parker, LLC (CLHP) of Macon at a called meeting on Tuesday night.

Certified Public Accountant Mark Hardison read through an independent auditor's report for the city for the year ending on December 31, 2011. During the presentation, Hardison addressed several issues that were found while auditing the city's financial statements of governmental activities.

Hardison said the audit found that the city had missing records, issues with payroll, and a significant amount of posting errors in their accounting. He told council a lot of adjustments were made to complete the audit. After the report, council member Mike Harper commented on the findings.

"We realize we have problems and we're taking care of them. We've made some adjustments in our office," Harper said.
