Forest Hill in Trouble Over Latest Audit

The village of Forest Hill is in trouble over its latest audit.

Auditors say a former clerk improperly re-paid money that was taken from the village credit card. But a lack of documentation creates a problem for the village finances.

Authorities say village officials have improperly purchased flowers for ill or deceased citizens, bought alcohol, donated money to a non-profit, and bought meals for a village Christmas party.

The entire audit is available at the legislative auditor’s web site: http://www.lla.state.la.us/
