The staff at Brown Edwards has served as much more than auditors. They have become a partner with the City of Winchester. They continually give us the guidance and expertise we need to navigate through new mandates and they offer solutions that fit our needs as a small government. The audits are consistently thorough and their focus is on customer services; their staff is always available to us throughout the year if we need assistance.
