Audit needed

first_imgSherman Oaks Drought problems Re “Villaraigosa threatens mandatory water cuts” (Dec. 11): Is the mayor going to limit or stop construction within the city until the drought is over? I don’t think so. New construction uses copious amounts of water. Usually, in Los Angeles, replacing older buildings means building bigger buildings. In both cases, the construction site will use more water then before. Unless part of the approval for the construction identifies, and pays for new, not previously used, sources of water the building(s) will be adding to our drought problems. – Irving Leemon Northridge Spending money Re “LAUSD pays for fliers backing mayor’s plan,” and “$4.7 million more may go to fixes of payroll system” (Dec. 11): Many weeks ago, the LAUSD spent millions fighting the mayor’s takeover of the L.A. schools. Now, it is helping him do it? Does anyone in the Los Angeles Unified School District know what they are doing, except spending money? Were not the teachers getting paid before LAUSD decided to spend $21million on a new payroll system? The LAUSD is too big and is just wasting our kids’ money? All you have to do is look at the above and Belmont High School to see that! Whatever happened to Belmont, by the way? Are we still wasting money there? – William Conroy Northridge Too much to ask? Regarding the proposed telephone-user tax referendum and the desire of the Department of Water and Power to raise water and power rates, I have only one concern. I would be happy to help if these agencies who come to us taxpayers for handouts would once show us they care about good stewardship of our resources. How about them taking the time to look at spending and using zero-based budgeting (a top to bottom audit of how a department can save money) to show us that they are doing all they can to spend our money wisely? Would that be too much for us, who are paying their salary, to ask? – Rev. Mark J. Jaufmann Woodland Hills Evil disclosure The editorial “Point, set, match” (Dec. 10) asserts the “public clearly has the right to know” the names, positions and salaries of Department of Water and Power employees. The Daily News editors fell into the cesspool of immorality when they exposed the private salary information of DWP employees – good, hard-working people who don’t negotiate salaries – to the world. Evil was victorious. The Daily News lost its moral compass. It was unnecessary, wrong and hurt people, even if it was legal. – Cliff Jones La Crescenta Phone-y tax Re “Phone tax could tap Net usage” (Dec. 11): Here we go again with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s phony phone tax. When will it stop? We are being taxed to death. Let’s see how many voters are going to fall for this scam. – Jose Fajardo Sylmar160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Atkins Re “Rate hikes and phone tax are ingredients for trouble” (Dec. 10): If the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power is to succeed in becoming a well-run department, a thorough and complete audit must be done. This includes auditing the purchasing department that spends more than $1billion annually. David Nahai should have a clean slate to begin his tenure as the new general manager. With a complete audit, the ratepayers will know if they are asked for a new rate increase that everything possible has been done to prevent it. We must have a complete and thorough audit. – Candido Marez last_img read more
