Irvine council members are set to consider a budget change for the Great Park forensic investigation, but officials aren’t saying how much it is.

The Republican council majority ordered the audit last year — and then increased it to a full blown investigation in January — after campaigning on a promise to bring fiscal accountability to the 1,300-acre park, which has little to show for the more than $200 million that has been spent on it.

Republican Councilwoman Christina Shea’s letter regarding the budget adjustment, which was attached to the meeting agenda, did not include a dollar amount.

Meanwhile, Democratic Councilwoman Beth Krom has also requested an update on the audit’s progress.

The council meeting starts Tuesday at 4 p.m.
