Topic suggestions for the committee’s work are also welcome
Last week, the St. Paul City Council began reaching out to residents, district councils, businesses, City employees and community partners to suggest topics to be considered by the St. Paul Audit Committee for a study.
The city council established the St. Paul City Council Audit Committee in August 2020 and released their findings from their first study on “Constituent and Customer Services” this past January.
The Audit Committee’s mission is to evaluate the financial and program performance of City departments to build public trust and ensure outstanding service delivery, transparency and accountability. The surveys are open for public input to audit the performance of City services throughout the year. Topic suggestions collected will be used to inform the work of the Audit Committee members.
“Public input on audit topics is key to the mission of the Audit Committee,” said Councilmember Rebecca Noecker. “We want to examine topics that people feel are relevant to their lives, build trust in City government, and improve their experiences working with the City.”
“The council audit committee wants to hear directly from the community about what works, and what could be working better in St. Paul,” said Councilmember Jane Prince. “Evaluating performance of City programs and processes allows us to increase their benefits and make a real difference in how our city operates.”
The St. Paul Audit Committee members include Councilmembers Rebecca Noecker, Jane L. Prince and Amy Brendmoen (ex-officio); and community advisors Ellen T. Brown, Dana M. DeMaster, Stephanie D. Dilworth and James T. Farnsworth.
The online surveys for residents can be found at https://bit.ly/3GABHUG and for City employees here: www.stpaul.gov/auditcommittee.
The public may also submit ideas via email to CCAuditCommittee@ci.stpaul.mn.us or phone at 651-266-8539.
