Audit criticizes Folsom finances
FOLSOM, La. - A state audit of the finances of the village of Folsom cites 19 findings of deficiencies, including undocumented fuel expenses for a vehicle driven by the mayor.
The report from the state legislative auditor's office, prepared by the firm of Griffin and Co., also finds that more than $169,000 in receipts for water and sewer bills were posted to the wrong accounts.
The Times-Picayune reports the audit covers July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012. Auditors say they found "numerous fuel charges related to the vehicle used by the mayor" but were unable to document that the charges were for use of the vehicle on village business.
Marshell Brumfield is mayor of the St. Tammany Parish community.
The audit recommends village officials request an accounting on the vehicle's use.
