Finding a few good financial experts for their new audit committee is proving difficult for San Diego city officials. The city is still short the number of private citizens it needs to serve voluntarily on the committee mandated by Proposition C, which was approved by voters in June.
The city attracted 11 applicants by its original Sept. 3 deadline, but only three of them met the minimum qualification — three short of the six needed, said Independent Budget Analyst Andrea Tevlin, who is in charge of recruitment.
The audit committee is a key component in Proposition C, which reconfigures the city’s internal auditing function. The city’s auditor, currently Eduardo Luna, will report to the committee, which in turn will report to City Council.
The revised deadline for applicants is Oct. 3. Those interested can visit the city’s website and click on “Become and Audit Committee Member.” Or contact Jeff Kawar at the office of the IBA at 619.533.4764.
