Kinloch Fire Protection District fails to improve after $100,000 is misspent, state auditor says
State Auditor Nicole Galloway released her follow-up review of the Kinloch Fire Protection District, located in St. Louis County, after an audit last year detailed how nearly $100,000 in public funds was missing or spent inappropriately. The follow-up review found that while some of the audit recommendations are implemented or in progress, many were either only partially or not implemented. 'The theft of nearly $100,000 in taxpayer money has a real impact on a community as small as Kinloch. Citizens deserve to know their elected officials will act quickly to make a fundamental change to prevent future wrongdoing,' Auditor Galloway said.
