It was telling that Spectator columnist Andrew Dreschel began a recent column by saying, “City Manager Chris Murray’s face may not have been sickly green, but he has rarely looked as crestfallen and crushed.”
Chris Murray was down because an internal audit about how consulting dollars were spent had just been shared with Council. It was a damning report, to say the least. Aside from the shocking dollar numbers, such as overspending on consultants last year by over 100%, it was even more shocking that it was described as a surprise.
This kind of surprise screams poor fiscal management, poor supervision, and perhaps worst of all, poor senior management oversight.
