State Auditor Says Bolivar Making Progress Correcting Money Problems

By Mike Morgan. CREATED Jul 25, 2014

The state auditor says Bolivar is well on the way to cleaning up financial mismanagement at city hall.

City Administrator Darin Chappell says the auditor's 90 day follow up shows recommendations on 42 separate items have been implemented or are in the process of being implemented. But he adds it will take time to completely fix every problem.

The December audit gave the city a poor performance rating.

Chappell says the bulk of those mistakes happened prior to the current administration taking over in April 2012.
