Creston

The city of Creston decided to employ the service of a Des Moines firm for their annual audit. For whatever reason, Draper, Snodgrass, and Mikkelsen requested an extension of the deadline, but were denied.

The city “wouldn’t want to set a precedent for the future.” Why not?

Can’t the city set a precedent for a local professional firm who has serviced local customers for decades?

The city wants its public to buy local and support local businesses. Shouldn’t the same be true for them? I think so.
