Pittsburgh Controller, Auditor General outline findings and plans for audits of city's troubled water authority

Pittsburgh Controller Michael Lamb was joined by state Auditor General Eugene DePasquale Thursday to release a performance audit of the embattled Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) and to announce DePasquale’s plans to conduct a separate review. 

The review by the Auditor General will focus more on PWSA governance and review and whether the current structure of the Authority is suitable to provide the proper oversight, while Controller Lamb’s review focused on PWSA’s installation of water meters, customer billing processes, customer service effectiveness, and concerns about lead in the drinking water- all problems that have plagued the Authority over the past couple of years.

Pittsburgh controller wants more information about Uber's self-driving cars

In an email sent to Mayor Bill Peduto on Tuesday, Pittsburgh City Controller Michael Lamb asked the mayor to make clear what terms, if any, have been negotiated with the ride-sharing company Uber concerning data collection while the company’s autonomous vehicles are being tested and used on city streets. 

“I support your efforts to bring new jobs and industry to Pittsburgh and you are correct that the relationship between the City and Uber must be a ‘two way street',” wrote Lamb in the letter. “Unfortunately, to this point, the relationship with Uber appears to be a one way limited access highway.”
