Mason received a positive financial statement for the 2013 fiscal year after adding almost $2.5 million to its fund balance, the city’s auditor reported at the City Council meeting on Oct. 21. William Tucker IV of Abraham and Gaffney audited the city and said Mason is doing fiscally well compared to many other communities in Michigan. “In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly in all material respects,” Tucker said. “That is a clean opinion and it is the best you can receive.”

A clean opinion states that there are no issues with the financial statements, Tucker said.
