The department heads provided updates on the work of the divisions they represent. I will not recap all that was said, as I am sure that the other bloggers in attendance will do that. For those who were not able to attend, the meeting was videotaped for later viewing on PCTV.
I am pleased to note that Mayor Mapp said that the city will be undergoing a forensic audit to ensure that the books are in order and to clear up all the troubling financial issues of the past administration, as well as a way to move forward with accountability to those taxpayers. Voters have requested this for years, and they will get what they asked for. I view this as confirmation of a new era of financial transparency in our municipal government.
* For the next Mayor's Town Hall, I am sure that the overwhelming turnout this time will result in a larger venue next time.
