fraud, embezzlement, affairs, what this city needs is for the state to shut them down. Where is the financial manager? Is their own police chef investigating something in city hall? I want the truth, the alderman aren't talking. When I asked I got no answers. As a Horn Lake residence I want answers. This is not a private business. John you are not doing your job. 27 and counting. my salt is pouring

I have the real story.

The city administrator, Andrea Freeze, is deeply involved in running the city's finances straight into the ground by spending money on such items as new furniture for her office, the financial directors office, the HR office...money that was supposed to be used to furnish the new fire station that was recently completed...Fire Station #3.(Now keep in mind that head of HR 'AJ' is newly married to the fire chief.

Every employee that this city administrator has hired has either quit or been fired; up to and including the most recent departure of Jake, the Finance Director, who admitted upon leaving that he had embezzled at least $16,000 by writing checks to himself and his 'partner' during his approximately 14 months on the job.

I will dole this sensitive information out a little at a time. stay tuned for next weeks installment of 'Crisis in Horn Lake'.

we can't wait a week,maybe overnight. has this Jake person been arrested? how does Ms. Freeze get to buy all this furniture, doesn't she have to be accountable for her purchases. like getting approval from the alderman. how did they catch this guy, was it an audit. Did his partner do work for the city or were they an employee? when you say partner are you talking male? why haven't we heard of this, when did this take place? how many affairs are we talking about, I know of one going on there and I know next to nothing that goes on. necking in the parking lot is not a good idea, I don't care who you are. who is John, is that the alderman. I guess I am a noisy old man, but somehow I think this is our business. I am sure this is the tip of the ice berg. This would be too funny if the sheriffs office had to investigate.

Ms Freeze salary is laughable, how can HLC afford $84,000.00 + for one person. How in this world did she get this much money, alderman you have lost what little sense you had. No one seems to care that this city is in terrible shape. I feel for you fire station #3. I will say Horn Lake has a good police chef, shame you want get a raise. Shame the police have to scold that bunch on what is right morally. BH was right about this bunch.

The citizens of Horn Lake have a right to know what is going on in our City Hall. We as voters should be told the truth from the City Hall, the Mayor and the Board of Alderman should at least make a statement in regard to what has actually happened. No explanation makes me think they are hiding something.

It is a shame when we cannot trust our elected officals!

The salaires these elected officals are drawing is part of the problem the city has, they are being paid to much money for what they do, I have not seen City Hall do much to improve Horn Lake City for it's citizens. They claim they have but in all honesty they have not. I am very sad to say, I have been very dis appointed in our elected officals and now they are asking us to elect them to another elected job, No Sir I don't think so!! It is time for us as citizens to take back our city and goverment offices. This November we need to put some fresh faces in office in Horn Lake and Desoto County.

I do want to say, the very best department we have is our City is the Horn Lake Police Department, Thank you Chief Waley!!!!!

Just a thought, Who is supposed to be in control of these theives, who is their boss? We need to take a serious look at our Mayor and Board of Alderman. If they can do no better than this they do not need to be in any office in our city or county goverment!

We have to take a serious look at what they have done for us, the permit department is a joke, maintenance department is a joke, the new animal shelter is a joke & a mess, just for a few areas to look at.
Example:
1. If you park your car or truck in the yard, certain people get tickets while others do not!
2. One residents carport has a grill citting on it, ticket! two housed down, juke everywhere carport and yard, No Ticket!
3. Animal Shelter ran by Maintenance dept. The all powerful Penny Spencer, who could care less about the shelter or the animals in it. New shelter stinks, never clean, animals put down without good reason, will give animals to some people and will not work with others. I will say, Ann, does everything she can but Mr. Spencer will not let her do much!

I could list many more that I have seen over my many years as a resident of Horn Lake...Looking to get out of here!!!!!

If the info being presented here is true, which I believe it to be, then those who do know the facts and details need to contact the State Auditor to come in and clean up the mess and make those responsible accountable, before it is too late, which it may already be. As taxpayers of Horn Lake we deserve better and to know that our money is being spend legally, wisely and for the betterment of the City, not for a few special individuals.

let me get this straight, the Mayor of Horn Lake wants to be sheriff, yet he has run Horn Lake in to ruins. This could be a good thing for the city maybe he would take Mrs. Freeze with him and we could start over. I guess I'm not thinking as sheriff he would have a gun, but on the other hand the new sheriffs office would be well decorated. We might make it on the cover of HOMES AND GARDEN.

How much did the Finance Director make ? Who found out about him ? How can you blame the Mayor unless he knew about this crooked employee ? If he threw his job away for $16K, he must not be the sharpest tack in the box...

HILBILLY: the mayor and his entourage is trying to keep it under the rug. The accountant caught it, and this city has not had an audit in 3 years. The Finance Director, you may be right about him not being the sharpest tack in the box, but to me to steal from the city proves that. What they did with the fire dept money is stealing. I happen to know alot about this and have been keeping up with what the city does with our money. This is all public record, or should be. No audit for 3 years is a crime, ask an alderman they will tell you, this is how I know. Drop in on a board meeting it is open to the public. My alderman talks to me and you know if an alderman is worried something is wrong,

The mayor is supposed to know what is going on in the city. That's what he was elected to do.
