NC Oversight Kind of a Mess

Here's what City Controller Wendy Greuel had to say in her recent audit of the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment, which oversees the city's neighborhood councils: "The findings showed that, while engagement and activism have grown, there has been a systematic failure of accounting and fiscal oversight of the neighborhood councils by DONE." Screw-ups include $880,000 in credit card purchases for which no paperwork has been submitted, and, according to the Argonaut, "a $5.6-million discrepancy between the amount of money the agency thought it had in its coffers and the figure that was actually available."
