The City Controller's financial audit report for Animal Services is now available on online at:
It reveals a department in financial disarray.
Please note Chick's citing of a $20,000 contract given to an alleged ex-girlfriend of Boks, signed by no one--with most of the work being done before she got the contract, and from which she never issued a final report.
However, I think she puts unnecessary demands on Animal Service personnel to better canvass the city to license dogs. I think as Ed and others have pointed out, there are many areas of the city where the canvasser would need a SWAT escort.
Besides, not one dollar collected actually goes to Animal Services, all of it goes to the general fund to pay for pork in some councilmember's district.
There will be a lot more analyses coming later.
