San Diego city officials say they have submitted drafts of the TransNet audits to SANDAG’s auditors, a milestone they hoped to reach by this week in order to begin receiving funding for road and freeway improvements by August.
The city is now waiting to hear back from the auditors, Mayor Jerry Sanders’ spokesman Fred Sainz said, referring to a message he received from the City Auditor’s Office.
SANDAG has cut off the city from its scheduled TransNet funding after the municipality failed to provide information verifying its use of the money, which is earmarked for transportation projects throughout the county. San Diego was the only jurisdiction to not comply by the May 31 deadline.
Here’s the full story about the delayed TransNet audits.
