Performance Audit of the City’s Brush Management on City-owned Land


In July 2023, the Office of the City Auditor published a performance audit of the City’s brush management on City-owned land. The objective of this audit was to determine whether the City conducts regular and effective brush management on City-owned land within high wildfire-risk zones.

The audit found that the City lacks comprehensive brush management oversight, causing inconsistent and potentially ineffective brush management efforts by some departments with significant amounts of land in Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zones. In addition, the audit found that the Parks and Recreation Department Open Space Division has a program to perform regular and effective brush management. The audit recommended that the City implement a more coordinated approach to ensure other high fire risk City-owned lands undergo regular brush management.
