The city of Los Angeles on Friday named a new inspector general to oversee the collection of debt, a move made after more than a year of discussion.

Fernando Campos was named to the post, promoted from the Harbor Department where he served as director of grants administration. The job is designed to go after millions of dollars owed the city for a variety of taxes and services, according to City Administrative Officer Miguel Santana.

City officials say some of the key problem areas for delinquencies include parking lot fees, parking tickets and EMS (emergency medical services) billings.
