Missing Personnel Reports For Indianapolis
A state law (I.C. 5-11-13) requires every state, county, city, town, township or school official, who is in charge of a respective governmental entity, to annually file a personnel report with the State Board of Accounts showing the names and business addresses of all officers, employees and agents of the governmental entity, their respective duties and compensation of each. A reliable source tells me that the City of Indianapolis has not filed this report since 2007, the last year of the Peterson administration. According to the state law, an official who fails to comply with this requirement commits a Class C infraction. If the person responsible for filing the report is an elected officer, he or she is subject to impeachment. Any other person is subject to removal for neglect of duty. Somebody at the City-County building who is responsible for filing this report needs to get their act together and file the missing reports.
