Members of the Reno City Council were unhappy with a three-page financial audit of the city’s contract with Waste Management.
Councilman Paul McKenzie said the audit findings were not in line with what council originally requested from city staff.

Councilmembers said that the three-page audit report, which found the waste hauler met its financial obligations to the city in 2014-2015, fell short of what they originally wanted from the outside review.
The audit, however, looked at whether Waste Management is accurately paying its fees to the city.
The auditor, Richard Bowler of Piercy, Bowler, Taylor & Kern, said, “The result of the examination was that the franchisee is in compliance with the contract as far as payment of franchise fees to the city.”
When pressed for the audit’s findings, and to elaborate, Bowler essentially repeated the same statement.
