Councilman Todd Gloria and Councilwoman Donna Frye are seeking a review of San Diego’s capital improvements program.
In a memo, Gloria and Frye ask City Auditor Eduardo Luna to conduct a performance audit of the program. Questions have been raised about the city’s ability to finish building projects, including those meant to help the city comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The memo said such delays undermine “public confidence in the City’s ability to get things done.” Gloria and Frye ask Luna to provide recommendations for reform:
We are particularly interested in performance measures for the Program and are concerned about the Program’s ability to deliver on its promises, the lack of prioritization used to initiate and execute projects, the timeliness of the delivery, and most important, the City’s capacity to manager and complete this workload.
Gloria has said the city should explore the idea of putting an infrastructure bond on the ballot as early as next year.
