The public employees retirement system in the city of Madison has been selected to be audited by the state auditor’s office.
In a letter to Madison Mayor Mary Hawkins Butler dated Sept. 3, State Auditor Stacey Pickering wrote that, due to new pension reporting standards,”the auditors of PERS are required to perform audit procedures on-site at selected PERS employer sites.”
According to the letter, the city of Madison was selected as a site to be audited.
“Mr. Pickering is welcome to any records this city has,” Butler said. “Madison has nothing to hide.”
