Measure R Oversight Committee Finds Compton spent funds on ineligible projects

measure rOn April 4, 2012, the Measure R Independent Taxpayers Oversight Committee of Metro, released the annual report on FY11 audits.  They found that Compton should have held $1,008,149 for transportation related projects.  At the time, the city’s total cash balance had a deficit of $6.4 million.  The report goes on to conclude that the City has spent all of the Measure R Local Return Fund balances on expenditures unrelated to Measure R Local Return Funds purposes.

Compton residents continue to complain about their streets being riddled throughout the city and Mayor Aja Brown told residents they must pass a 1 cent tax to solve the problem.
