The Alameda County Grand Jury says that the Berkeley Rent Stabilization Board is a "self-sustaining bureaucracy that operates without effective oversight and accountability." The biggest reason for that statement? The rent board pays its director $183,000 a year to oversee a $4 million budget and manage 21 employees. The director of public works doesn't even make that much, and that person oversees 326 employees and has an annual budget of $90 million. [Berkeleyside/image via Shutterstock]
