City Hires Auditor 

McMahon fills longtime vacancy

After a vacancy of about eight months, the City of Boise has hired a new internal auditor. Jim McMahon started the job Monday, after working in the city's Treasury department, where he oversaw the city's investment portfolio.

The job has a lot of responsibility, and has the potential to make a few heads roll at City Hall, if past auditor work is any indication. The office was created late in 2003 in part as a response to prior scandals at City Hall under the Brent Coles administration.

McMahon said his job is to report directly to the city council.

City Council President Maryanne Jordan announced the McMahon hire late Tuesday.

"As a matter of good practices, an organization of this size needs somebody that can look at internal operations," Jordan said. "I think he's going to do a very good job."
