Description

WKRN-TV (Nashville) "uncovered hundreds of thousands of dollars in rate payers' money wasted by a water and sewer department fraught with 'good ole boy' connections and possible criminal wrongdoing. Few controls allowed motor repair shops to charge ratepayers two and three times the going rate for motor repair. Lax supervision allowed meter readers to routinely collect for work never performed."
