Description

An examination of purchase records revealed that Southlake city employees often made as many as 10 trips a day to the same two home and garden stores to purchase items for the city. One object was possibly to get around competitive bidding. Several employees were also accused of buying personal items with tax dollars. Bahari found that other cities in the area had much more stringent controls on spending.
