The annual city’s comptroller’s report focuses on the deficiencies of the different administrations at Safra Square. City comptroller Malka Dror last week published her report covering the year 2016, along with the reaction and remarks of Mayor Nir Barkat and of the specific heads of the subsidiary administrations and companies named in the report. Each chapter focuses on a specific issue or department and includes the responses of the persons and/or department heads in question. The report also includes Barkat’s overall response to the findings.

Never a pleasant moment for the controlled and the inspected, a comptroller’s report is essential in a public institution such as the municipality.
