Audit: SF isn't wasting stimulus dollars 

For all of those who have raised doubts about stimulus spending, here is some good news for you: San Francisco isn’t wasting its given dollars.

According to California Inspector General Laura Chick’s audit of federal stimulus funds received by San Francisco, The City has no reportable issues concerning how it's spending the money received through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

San Francisco is set to receive more than $1.12 billion in federal stimulus funds, money that will help pay for the Doyle Drive reconstruction, the renovation of the UN Plaza and construction for the Transbay Terminal, according to Mayor Gavin Newsom.

“I’m very proud that the Inspector General’s report validates that San Francisco is spending the federal stimulus dollars we’ve received quickly and efficiently,” Newsom said. “From the beginning, we created the Recovery SF website so residents and taxpayers could track our progress and stay informed about stimulus money spending, jobs and projects.”
