NEW ROAD, La. (AP) - An investigative audit says auditors could not find proof to substantiate claims of irregularities over compensatory time payments and health care deductible reimbursements to Pointe Coupee Parish employees.
The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1dX9OPN) the audit report came to the same conclusion on allegations that employees were abusing parish credit card privileges by charging meals during work-related travel, then claiming the same expenses for reimbursement later.
Legislative auditors combed through the parish’s financial records after the Police Jury adopted a resolution Sept. 10 asking an investigative audit be performed after the allegations were lodged against employees.
The report does not name the employees or the departments involved in the investigation. The report also doesn’t identify who made the allegations to the Legislative Auditor’s Office.
