Audit Uncovers Questionable City Purchases

An audit finds a former employee of a Nebraska town allegedly purchased parts for his personal vehicles and equipment.

Nebraska state auditor Mike Foley sent the report to Fort Calhoun mayor Mitch Robinson. The audit found numerous parts and supplies incompatible with Fort Calhoun city vehicles. The audit uncovered $4,932 in questionable purchases.

After 21 years Steve Becker is no longer a city employee. He had supervised the city’s maintenance department.

Becker faces a charge in Washington County for theft of city property. That involved a city mower that was supposed to be traded in but was located on Becker’s property.

Mayor Robinson told Channel Six News that he’ll review the audit and make changes so nothing like this happens again.
