DFA visits Sunland Park to check things out
‘This is just really a collaborative effort to get DFA face-to-face with Sunland Park employees,’ DFA spokesman Tim Korte says.
The state Department of Finance and Administration, which may ultimately be charged with suspending some Sunland Park officials and bringing in outside help to take over certain functions, is in the city today the check things out.
But DFA isn’t in Sunland Park to take over city functions or even necessarily in preparation for that. They’re evaluating the city’s record-keeping and budgetary processes.
“This is just really a collaborative effort to get DFA face-to-face with Sunland Park employees,” DFA spokesman Tim Korte said. “We are simply trying to identify potential deficiencies and make recommendations to the city on best practices.”
The state auditor is conducting a special audit of the city and may ultimately recommend that DFA intervene by suspending some city officials and bringing in outside help. That has never been done before in New Mexico.
