In early 2010, The Piedmont City Council directed its Audit Subcommittee to examine the City’s handling of the construction of the Piedmont Hills Underground Assessment District. The Subcommittee assigned each of its members to examine specific parts of the City’s handling of the project. After their examination, each member prepared a draft report section. On March 15, 2011, the Subcommittee took public testimony on the draft report sections and directed staff to compile the three sections into a draft preliminary Report. The Subcommittee took testimony on the draft preliminary report at a hearing on August 23, 2011. At that meeting, the subcommittee assigned Vice Mayor John Chiang to compile changes into a draft preliminary report.
