At 2 p.m. in the Seventh Floor Conference Hearing Room, the Council’s Audit Committee will receive an update from County Inspector General Edward Blansitt III on the activities of his office. His report will include progress being made by the informal Inspector General Advisory Group, which first met in May 2012 and is providing independent recommendations of priority audit topics it feels the Inspector General should consider.
