San Diego’s Audit Committee expects to decide the fate of Auditor Eduardo Luna and his top deputy, Chris Constantin, “by the end of March,” a spokesman for committee chairman Kevin Faulconer said Tuesday.
A decision would end the now-eight month inquiry into allegations against the pair of workplace harassment and retaliation. The city spent $120,000 on two investigations by outside law firms, and the committee has had the firms’ reports since early November. But the committee hasn’t taken any action.
The city also has refused to release the two reports, saying committee members need more time to make a decision. Two public records experts have said the committee’s inaction should not stall the release of the reports, and contend the city should turn them over now.
The city attorney’s office has said it will make the reports public once the entire probe has finished. Faulconer’s spokesman said the councilman agrees with that position.
The Audit Committee canceled a meeting scheduled for next Monday and isn’t scheduled to meet again until March 21.
