Harrisburg’s City Council will schedule a public hearing within days over the Pennsylvania capital’s missing audits from 2009 and 2010.

“It’s really ridiculous,” said council member Brad Koplinski, who called for the hearings.

At a recent public forum, Mayor Linda Thompson blamed the delay

on requests for documents from auditors.

“We’re working very tirelessly to get it done,” Thompson said. “We’re pulling people from different departments who have no idea about audits that are helping out.”

William Cluck, a local attorney and board member of the Harrisburg Authority public works agency, said the city has run out of excuses.

“What I’m hearing is the city can’t find the documents,” he said. “Then fine, the audit should be released and say that.”
