City Clerk Jannette Goodall on Friday certified a petition asking the Austin City Council to put on the Nov. 6 ballot a call for an outside audit of all city departments. Citizens for an Accountable Austin, the political action committee that originally submitted 30,895 signatures to Goodall’s office on July 12, intends to ask the council to consider approving the ballot initiative at its regular meeting Thursday. Polling paid for by the group has shown that an estimated 82 percent of Austin residents support this kind of auditing.
