Report 2021-802 Recommendations

Under the State Auditor's local high-risk program, a local agency that is designated as high risk as a result of an audit is required to submit a corrective action plan. It must then provide written updates every six months after the audit report is issued regarding its progress in implementing its corrective action plan. Accordingly, the local agency's efforts to address the recommendations in the report will be reflected in this plan and its subsequent updates.

The recommendations directed to the Legislature are presented below, along with a link to the most recent status on the implementation of each recommendation.

Recommendations to Legislature
Number Recommendation Status

Based on deficiencies with city council oversight that we discuss in this report as well as in several previous audits of other cities, to improve the governance of cities throughout California, the Legislature should consider requiring all individuals who serve on a city council to participate in recurring training related to municipal finance, budgeting, and the council's role in overseeing city operations.
