L.A. Care Set for Audit
On a motion by County Mayor Michael D. Antonovich, who was recently appointed to the L.A. Care Board of Governors, the board of supervisors voted unanimously to conduct an audit of L.A Care. L.A. Care is a nonprofit health plan that administers more than $4 billion in public funds and was created to manage health care and Medi-Cal health care coverage for millions of Los Angeles County residents.
State law requires that the county auditor-controller conduct annual financial audits of the organization; however, no audits have been conducted since its inception in 1994.
The auditor-controller will report back to the board on a plan of how to conduct the required annual audits.
Local Compliance Field Licensing Efforts Planned
Officers from the Dept. of Animal Care and Control (DACC) will be conducting field licensing enforcement in the unincorporated areas of La Crescenta and Montrose beginning Wednesday, Feb. 11. Field enforcement efforts are designed to ensure that residents’ dogs and cats are in compliance with licensing requirements and the mandatory spay/neuter and microchip ordinance. California state law requires that all dogs over the age of four months be vaccinated against rabies and be licensed. In addition to dogs, the County of Los Angeles requires that all cats over the age of four months be vaccinated against rabies and licensed.
Residents not in compliance will be subject to license fees and delinquency charges, including a $40 field enforcement fee to offset the cost of the department’s field services. To secure a new animal license, print the application online at www.animalcare.lacounty.gov, or visit a local Los Angeles County animal care center. Owners of pets whose license is not delinquent can renew online.
