Issue 2: Transparency and Accountability in our COSA Government
I have requested information over the years from both the COSA and the SAPD. I get the distinct impression that there are things they do not want known because my requests are often ignored or incomplete, as if they don’t feel it is that important for me to have the information I’ve requested.
I also have the very distinct impression that there are many gaps in COSA departments. When I have had to call for services, responses vary. I receive reports that employees may not be doing the job that our tax dollars are paying them to do. This makes me question supervision. I would like to ensure that the citizens of St. Augustine have the effective and efficient services that we pay City taxes for.
