1994 Auditor Responsibilities

This measure appeared on the May 17, 1994 Primary Election Ballot
CAPTION: Clarifies Existing Duties and Responsibilities of the City Auditor
QUESTION: Shall Charter be amended to clarify the existing duties and responsibilities of the City Auditor?
SUMMARY: The Charter lists four basic duties and responsibilities of the City Auditor. These are audits, elections, maintenance of public records and certifications of official documents. Existing Charter provisions are outdated and written in a confusing manner. The proposed Charter amendments consolidate and reorganize existing Charter provisions. Unnecessary Charter language is removed. Procedural matters are referred to City Code, Charter provisions relating to accounting procedures are transferred to Chapter 7 and made the responsibility of the chief financial officer consistent with current practices.
