CliftonLarsonAllen Reaches Agreement with City of Dixon

MINNEAPOLIS (September 25, 2013) CliftonLarsonAllen (CLA), a national certified public accounting and consulting firm, today reached an agreement with the City of Dixon, Ill., to settle the lawsuit filed by the City in 2012. The allegations of fraud committed by City of Dixon Comptroller Rita Crundwell, some of which she pled guilty to, are extremely serious and present an opportunity for all affected parties to evaluate how they occurred, said Gordon Viere, CliftonLarsonAllen CEO. We believe there was a shared responsibility that resulted in Ms. Crundwells fraud continuing undetected, and the right thing to do is reduce the harm experienced by the taxpayers of Dixon and put this matter behind us. Reaching a fair settlement for taxpayers is important to CliftonLarsonAllen. Clifton Gunderson merged with LarsonAllen in January 2012 to create CliftonLarsonAllen with the objective of having an industry-driven approach to client services. As an outcome, services to city governments are now led by personnel with specialized knowledge and experience in serving public bodies, increasing the likelihood that such fraud will be detected promptly. CliftonLarsonAllen is one of the most respected firms in the country, Viere explained. Our promise to our clients and employees is to continue to deliver services at the highest standards of the industry within our integrated industry-driven approach.
