Mayor Reviews Own Report
September 29th, 2009

In very typical Bloomberg administration fashion, the mayor released a review of his annual report, which reviews city agencies’ performances.

Only in the Bloomberg administration can they release a review of a review and make news.

Nonetheless, the Wonkster took a perusal. Within the plethora of measurements, which were divided into six categories, negatives are few and far between.

There are a few though. Here is the raw data:

Construction related incidents (New Category): 214 (FY06), 543 (FY09)
Construction related injuries (New Category): 87 (FY06), 233 (FY09)
Parks rated acceptable for overall condition: 85 percent (FY01), 87 percent (FY05), 82 percent (FY09)
Average time to resolve elevator complaints in public housing (hours): 9.6 (FY06), 11.4 (FY09)
Food service establishments that require reinspection: 13.9 percent (FY01), 17.5 percent (FY05), 24.3 percent (FY09)
Percent of active cash assistance caseload who are placed into jobs (New Category): 32 percent (FY01), 26 percent (FY05), 24 percent (FY09)
