SAY WHAT??? - Audit faults NC's for NOT spending money
I had to read that 3 times to see if I got that right. If NC's don't spent their $50,000 of loot by the 3rd year, it gets returned to the cities General Fund so why on earth has the city been turning up the heat on Neighborhood Councils to just blow their money ??? Well, so they can criticize Neighborhood Councils for what they're blowing the money on of course.
Neighborhood Councils get peanuts and have to save their loot for several years just to have enough to plant a few trees but here comes the city actually complaining that the money isn't being spent fast enough.
That is how you know things are seriously screwed up in City Hall. When fiscal responsibility is not only not practiced, but actually scorned by the very office who is supposed to demand nothing less, the City Controller.
