BAKER, La. (AP) — The City Council has ended its decades-old relationship with the Mary Sue Stages auditing firm and awarded a contract for its fiscal year 2013 audit to Postlethwaite & Netterville of Baton Rouge.
Councilwoman Joyce Burges, who proposed the motion to select the new firm, tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/10eUGVW) the council considered a total of five firms before settling on Postlethwaite & Netterville.
The Stages firm is based in Baker.
Councilman Norman "Pete" Heine proposed a substitute motion to rehire Mary Sue Stages but received no support from other council members.
Heine said Postlethwaite & Netterville had no connection to Baker, though he praised its professional credentials.
