A formal audit by the San Diego County Office of Audits and Advisory Service found no evidence of fraud but still recommends change.

"The Grand Jury found that the demise of redevelopment has hit Imperial Beach hard economically and we recommend and encourage the city take strong action to get their financial house in order," a statement from the county stated.

See the PDF for the full report.

In an attempt to block the Grand Jury from using specific information related to city and redevelopment agency legal fees, the city filed a restraining order last month.

Last week a Superior Court judge ruled the Grand Jury could use documents willingly turned over by the city in an audit of city financial activities.

Check back soon for additional analysis and comment from the City of Imperial Beach.
