Bowie City Council to revisit audit proposal

Bowie City Councilors will consider selecting an auditor for the present fiscal year and two requests to fill vacancies within the city staff when they meet 6 p.m. on Oct. 3.
The city advertised for audit proposals, but at its last meeting declined a proposal from Mathis, West, Huffines Group of Wichita Falls for $25,500. The Altman Group has been doing the audit the past three years with a one-year option remaining.
