Description

Our investigation uncovered the fact that the city of George West used a public infrastructure loan called a “certificate of obligation” to purchase housing for the city manager and other, select city employees. They justified the expenditure by placing the homes in a city-owned park. Which they called a “park improvement.” The first story gave birth to several follow-ups, with more to come.
