Chattanooga Library Officials Subject of Scathing Audit
A slew of accusations against the Chattanooga library's top personnel. A new audit unveils possible fraud.
Internal City Auditor, Stan Sewell, released the eight-page report earlier this week. In it, Sewell cites possible instances of fraud naming four of the library's top personnel including Chattanooga Public Library Director, Corinne Hill; Assistant Library Director, Nathaniel Hill; and Systems Administrator, Margaret Backus.
The probe found that all of those employees had taken vacation time, but didn't report it to their personnel officer.
Mr. Hill and Ms. Backus is accused of taking paid speaking engagements while also being paid by the library.
Backus is also accused of submitting false time reports and deleting pertinent information to the investigation.
Now, Sewell says the city has asked the audit committee to do a follow-up to ensure that disciplinary action is taken.
