Why would they be investigating the county of Wyoming? Seems like the Sheriffs dept does a good job on Crime in the Area!

Does it matter? If there's wrong doing then kudos to the person(s) that reported it.$97k in auto parts with some not compatible with vehicles the town owns - that's a problem.

If all the information in the newspaper is true then there needs to be an investigation. Government has to follow the law just like we do. Good job to those who reported it and good job to the gazette got putting that information out to the public.

The amount was reported in the gazette and again today in the register-herald. It also seems the town was allowing pay advances and making loan payments for employees. Here's the link to today's article: http://m.register-herald.com/TRH/db_265763/co...
