Judy Tripodi – Valued added budgeting, transparency
This is part 4 of the audio interview with Judy Tripodi, the state fiscal monitor. Initial questions here are twofold: one on the practical impact of the standards adopted and implemented in the 2010 budget and in the secondary area of updated financial software. Public Information Officer Paul Drexell jumps in at one point to identify a detail.
First question here starts asking what are the advantages with the revamping of the budget process and the specific benefits to Hoboken. Then the issue of budget transparency is discussed with the public’s desire to get more details on the existing information and drilling into how more details can be made available. Parks become an interesting example as part of this discussion.
MSV plans on completing the series by the end of the week.
