F.C. Sets Oversight of Inter-Jurisdictional Contracts

To prevent a repeat of the kind of software errors that shocked the City with a erroneous bill for over $2 million from Arlington County for jail services last month, Falls Church City Manager Wyatt Shields has drafted a plan for deploying the City’s Chief Financial Officer Richard LeCondre to periodically review all its 19 inter-jurisdictional contracts on a quarterly basis.

The plan was presented to the F.C. City Council Tuesday night. In the case of the jail bill, Shields said, “The fact is, we don’t know how many prisoners we have in Arlington, or send there in a given year.” He said that only after a thorough audit was it determined the $2 million bill was in error, and that Falls Church will owe Arlington only $123,000 in the coming fiscal year.
