SOUTHAVEN — Southaven aldermen say they want an internal audit of city finances to get a more in-depth look than the one provided by the routine annual audit.
The Commercial Appeal reports a newly formed committee plans to initiate the review in the wake of ongoing questions over Mayor Greg Davis’ spending.
Davis, who presided over last Tuesday’s Board of Aldermen meeting for the first time since returning from a 30-day medical leave amid growing revelations about his spending and business practices, is being investigated by state and federal officials for the misuse of $170,000 of city money. He has repaid $96,000, but he still owes nearly $63,000.
Aldermen also plan to start providing online access to the meeting packets they receive prior to each meeting.
