SOUTHAVEN — Southaven city officials said Thursday that steps have been taken to ensure the deficiencies in financial reporting which arose during the past administration will not happen again.
The external auditors examined 20 travel reimbursement requests, according to Southaven City Administrator Chris Wilson, who is also the city’s chief financial officer.
Most dealt with travel expenses which were reimbursed to former Mayor Greg Davis without receipts and other documentation.
Of those 20 requests, five of them had inconsistencies; such as credit card statement used for reimbursement rather than original receipts, payee signed as the department head to authorize payment, and no explanation for business purpose.
