    Looks like a broken link on the Austin City Auditor/neighborhood plans item (second from the top). I’m bummed because I was really curious about it! (Can’t find it with Googling.)

    • Jay Blazek Crossley

      Hi Jake, I updated the link. Thanks for catching the problem. Now it takes you to the committee meeting agenda page, but should have the draft audit as a pdf you can download on the right side of the page. Does that work?

      • Jake Wegmann

        Yes, Jay, that does the trick–thank you.
