LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - The Lawrence City Commission will ask for an outside audit of public funds spent on the Rock Chalk Park sports complex.

The commission also decided Tuesday to delay a $1 million payment for infrastructure for the park in northwest Lawrence. The commission had been criticized for not seeking competitive bids on about $12 million in infrastructure work at the park.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (https://bit.ly/16sLDf6 ) City Auditor Michael Eglinski will determine the scope of the audit and recommend auditors not connected to the city or the University of Kansas.

Commissioners said they hope the audit will be finished by early February.

Commissioners have said they did not require competitive bids on the project largely because KU Endowment officials objected to the bid process.
