CUCCAC Upholds CIFAC's Complaint -- Sacramento County
CIFAC's complaint to the California Uniform Cost Accounting Commission against Sacramento County's Road Commissioner was upheld and the County issued a "strike." The Road Commissioner of Sacramento County appeared before the August 22nd meeting of the California Uniform Cost Accounting Commission (CUCCAC) to respond to CIFAC's complaint that the County paved a major roadway in excess of its $45,000 force account limit without declaring it a Road Commissioner authorized project. The Commission ruled that although the provisions of the Act concerning the declaration of road commissioner work were still new, the County exceeded the limit. One Commissioner compared it to the way drivers exceed the speed limit. You either did it or you didn't do it. The CUCCA Commissioners concluded that Sacramento County had violated the Act. They made a finding that the County should be sanctioned. Three sanctions, the same as three strikes, within a ten year period results in the jurisdiction having to use its original (lower) force account limit for five years.
