City of Coral Gables is said to Double Bill FEMA

One might hope that this Coral Gables Gazette story is not quite as bad as it looks initially. However, it does not engender enormous confidence in the finance director and auditing functions in Coral Gables, to say the least. No great confidence that the City is able to keep track of others’ money, let alone the taxpayers.
Florida has ordered Coral Gables to reimburse over $1.2 million of federal funds the city had apparently doubled billed and was paid twice for clean up expenses of three 2005 Hurricanes: Katrina, Rita and Wilma.
