Audit: City missing nearly $764K; police investigating
BARDSTOWN, Ky. (AP) — An audit of a Kentucky city found nearly $764,000 in missing cash receipts, undocumented personal expenses and account credits over a six-year period ending last year. WHAS-TV reported that the findings of the audit have been turned over to Kentucky State Police and an investigation is ongoing. Certified public accountant Linda Gray outlined how the money disappeared from the City of Bardstown coffers during an audit presentation this month to the City Council. She also made several recommendations for the city to strengthen its financial controls. No charges have been filed.
