ST. JOSEPH, La. (AP) - The town of St. Joseph does not plan to fight a state request to place a fiscal administrator to oversee the community’s finances.

During a meeting of the town’s Board of Aldermen Wednesday night, The News-Star reports (https://tnsne.ws/1U21TJu) Mayor Edward Brown said he will not challenge the appointment of the administrator. The Governor’s Office and the Attorney General’s Office filed a petition in May to appoint a fiscal administrator to improve the town’s financial practices and records.

The state’s Fiscal Review Committee recommended an administrator be appointed to help expedite funds being sent to the town to upgrade its water treatment plant.

The town has not been able to receive the money because it failed to file an audit.
