Grand jury seeks expert help to study government books

By Natasha Lindstrom

SAN BERNARDINO • The 2009-10 grand jury of San Bernardino County has requested outside legal counsel to help examine the books and records of local government agencies, according to Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors agenda.

This year’s grand jury has “determined that it is in need of expert assistance to carry out its duties,” and San Bernardino Superior Court’s presiding judge has approved the proposal, according to the board agenda.

Tuesday county supervisors are set to award a $ 195,000 contract to Michael Kessler & Associates Ltd. to provide the citizen watchdog group with forensic accounting services.
