Description

This story and subseqent follow-ups revealed the theft of nearly two million dollars from a town of fewer than two thousand people by a former city manager. The initial report showed how the man while he was city manager created bills from phony companies for engineering work that was never done. It showed how the city sent payments to post office boxes rented by the then-city manager.
