A Message from the Inspector General

Inspector General Dennis Sutton

During my 20+ years with the City of Tallahassee, I have seen first-hand that the vast majority of City employees are honest, conscientious, hard-working, and caring public servants.  However, as with any large group over a long period of time, there have been instances where City employees have not lived up to expectations and fallen short of the City’s standards of conduct.  It is my hope the audit and investigative work of the Office of Inspector General will help show the citizens of Tallahassee their city government is working to serve them efficiently and in a manner expected of public servants. To that end, I am asking you to let the Office of Inspector General know when you see or hear something in City government that doesn’t seem right or isn’t working as well as it could. 


In 1979, the City Commission established the Office of the City Auditor as an independent internal audit function, unencumbered by operational responsibilities and reporting to the Commission.  For over 40 years the Office of the City Auditor served the citizens in that capacity.

In July of 2020, the City Commission enacted Ordinance 20-O-22AA which expanded the authority and responsibility of the Office of the City Auditor to create the City’s Office of Inspector General and designated the City Auditor to serve as the City’s Inspector General.
