City council and fiscal accountability

2 posts in this topic

Within the past few weeks to months, a few issues have surfaced which have brought the city's financial priorities to light. Examples the city failing to close the books for the last fiscal year, giving money to private colleges under the guise that the projects for which the funds were aimed will help to increase tourism, repaying a personal debt related to the Columbia Festival of the Arts, and diverting money from the water and sewer fund to other unrelated projects. It also appears that the city's financial department is in utter disarray, according to a recent article in the Free Times.

So I guess the question is, what will it take to get Columbia's financial house in order? Have things always been like this? Is Coble to blame?
