After Anita Fain-Taylor, you’d think Lauderdale Lakes would try something else besides “turning a blind’s eye.”
Hell, when I bury my head in the sand, the weather’s perfectly fine down here.[cleeng_content id=”404783783″ description=”Why stop now? It’s just getting interesting!” price=”0.99″ referral=”0.10″]Sadly, in the end, City ignored every one of John Scott’s recommendations.
And last week, the City published their response.
Here’s our retort.
Issue #1: City Staff review… themselves.
Holy Christ. Really?
It was :JA: that caught the OIG’s attention, so the correction is for Allen to review himself? Can you have a circle jerk of one?
Maybe it’s just us, but this problem began when Allen axed the purchasing department.
And we agree a CCNA review is long overdue.
Our staff noted, “What idiot thought this was a fix.”
Issue #2: Reviews to be done on a regular basis.
Yeah, no shit.
City charter demands the Commission approve all contracts over $25,000 and now, they’ll evaluate “all substantive deals below that threshold.”
What the hell does that mean?
We note that Allen has taken to hiding information from his bosses.
Issue #3: Prepare to be assimilated.
Six months later and the City is “still preparing” new procedures for adoption.
Hint to Allen: Spend less time traveling on
Issue #4: Going off the ranch.
So what happens when Allen decides to free-ball it – ignoring proposals, misuse of sole-source covenants, and/or cronyism (ADA, DSI, etc.)?
Issue #5: Oh those criminal felony acts.
Even though the OIG noted Allen’s open disregard for policy and deliberate violation of the city’s charter, no administrative action will be taken.[/cleeng_content]
