When City Controller Laura Chick releases an audit showing deficiencies within the city, it's up to the departments, the city council and the media to follow up and make sure the issues are addressed. Otherwise, what's broken in the city won't get fixed. Councilmember Wendy Greuel, who is running for Controller next year, is taking the recent Emergency Prep audit to task. "The audit found various emergency plans that are outdated and incomplete," Greuel said in e-mailed statement about the motion she submitted today. "It is important that the City review its emergency preparedness plans, including how it will manage its funds, so that City may continue to provide the necessary services to its residents. This is something that should not wait until it's too late."
