So, we figured that monthly meant monthly, and after thirty days we asked the City to provide the first such report.
Today we received their response. It's about that you would expect. They included a report prepared in 2012 and this cover e-mail:
Attached you will find the document responsive to your public records request dated July 29, 2013 which requests a copy of the monthly update or report and any figures relative to the operating budget for the Streetcar. Please note that the date of this information is October 2012 and the operating plan is being adjusted by SORTA.So, it sounds to us like monthly does not mean monthly and they can get away with proceeding with this project without any public accountability. They also seem to expect that, even in an election season, no news outlet will hold them accountable for their serial lies.
I believe that this completes the City’s response to your public records request at this time. If you have any questions, or you believe that there is a document missing, please feel free to contact me.
Business as usual.
