Tarentum Borough’s new auditor submitted a bid that is well below one filed by the long-time auditor and another CPA, officials say.
Borough Manager Michael Nestico said Mark C. Turnley CPA’s bid was $10,500 to perform all of the the borough’s audits.
That was more than $9,000 less than the other bids.
“His firm specializes in municipal audits,” Nestico said.
The most recent auditor, Rich Hill of Tarentum, and a Pittsburgh firm each bid $19,900 to do the same work, according to Nestico.
“He isn’t from Tarentum, but Hill said it’s a good firm,” Nestico said.
Turnley’s office is in New Brighton.
Officials voted unanimously to hire Turnley.
