The audit will also determine if street projects are completed timely and cost efficiently. The audit will review the funds that are spent in accordance with the City’s plans and goals. Lastly, the audit will determine if the City considers equity when determining which street projects are most appropriate in the long-term planning of the City’s street paving program.

 

Clean Truck Fund Performance Audit

The Clean Truck Fund was developed by the Port of Long Beach and Port of Los Angeles as part of their joint Clean Air Action Plan. It generates revenues through fees paid by truck owners who enter or exit the Port complex, which is used to fund clean air initiatives. These fees are collected by a third party, PortCheck, and has generated $79 million in revenue since 2022.  This audit seeks to verify the fees collected by PortCheck and assess the Port of Long Beach’s oversight and management of the Clean Truck Fund.  The audit will also review the voucher program handled by another third party, CALSTART, who utilizes Clean Truck Fund monies to partially subsidize truck owners who purchase zero or low emission trucks.
