DAYTON, Ky. (AP) - The city of Dayton is suing its former mayor to recover city money it claims he improperly used to help expand a local pizzeria.

The Kentucky Enquirer reports (https://cin.ci/1D2LOxf) the suit against Ken Rankle was filed last week in Campbell County District Court.

It claims Rankle in 2011 signed checks totaling $2,256 for engineering surveys to expand an outdoor patio at Buona Vita Pizzeria. The lawsuit claims the City Council did not approve the expense and Rankle didn’t inform anyone in the city about it.

The paper could not reach Rankle for comment.

Buona Vita owner Joe Frommeyer said the deal with the city was above board. Frommeyer said he met not only with Rankle, but also the city administrator and several members of City Council.
