Gentlemen,

AMENDMENTS TO THE REPORT ON THE DEPARTMENT OF
PUBLIC ADMINISTRATOR-PUBLIC GUARDIAN

At the Board of Supervisor's meeting on February 22, when we submitted the committee's report on the Department of Public Administrator-Public Guardian, your Board asked the committee to consider certain changes in the composition and role of the policy and management commission which we recommended.

At a meeting of our committee on March 1, the committee voted to make the following amendments to our report.

We believe that the ultimate responsibility for management of the department must rest with the Public Administrator-Public Guardian. However, in establishing effective systems, procedures, and controls, he should consult continually with the commission. As we stated in our previous report, the commission should report at least quarterly in writing to the Board of Supervisors.

Very truly yours,


ROBERT MITCHELL, Chairman
