L.A. Streets: Road to the Future

The Office of the Controller has completed an audit of the Bureau of Street Services’ Resurfacing and Maintenance Activities. Our findings are included in the attached report, “L.A. Streets: The Road to the Future,” which we are releasing today.

Our audit sought to gauge the Bureau’s management of street resurfacing activities and to evaluate its use of resources.

This audit is vital and timely because the quality of City streets is an issue that affects all Angelenos. What’s more, L.A. citizens may be called upon in the near future to vote on a plan to fund street restoration, — which one estimate says will cost nearly $4 billion for the City’s D and F rated streets. When Angelenos vote on such measures, they should have total confidence that, should they choose to approve the funding, the money Will be spent wisely and appropriately.
