Hogsett starts ‘aggressive’ cost review of city programs

Indianapolis mayor-elect Joe Hogsett has enlisted public accounting and consulting firm Crowe Horwath LLP to help complete a “strategic review” of city-county government.

Hogsett announced Friday that the firm, which provided similar help to Mayor Greg Ballard’s transition team back in 2007, will provide a bipartisan team of analysts to provide free assistance to One City Indy, the name of the group leading Hogsett’s transition.

Hogsett, a Democrat, said he wants an “aggressive review” of existing departments, agencies, processes and programs before he takes office Jan. 1.

“I have made clear to this bipartisan team that I’m not interested in whether something is a Democratic idea or a Republican idea—I only care whether what we’re currently doing is a good for taxpayers and the public’s safety,” Hogsett said in a written statement.
