Last month the Virginia Auditor of Public Accounts notified the City of Martinsville by letter that it wanted to look closer at the city’s financial situation to identify any distress that may be present. City Manager Leon Towarnicki explained to City Council at its regular meeting last night that the letter included a questionnaire with 34 questions. The answers were scored with 0 being perfect and 125 being the worst. Martinsville scored 32.5. Towarnicki said he had no idea whether Martinsville had a good number or not, or whether there would be further follow-up with the state or not.
