State Auditor To Release Bolivar's Progress Report

By Lynne Roberts. CREATED Jul 25, 2014

The City of Bolivar is hoping State Auditor Tom Schweich will deliver good news when he's in town on Friday. 

Schweich is expected to give the city an update on the progress it has made to improve its financial situation. 

The problems were noted in a December audit in which the city received a "poor" grade, because of things like bad accounting practices and mismanagement of funds.  The report also said the city overspent on an aquatic center by millions of dollars.

Bolivar was given three months to make changes. 

Schweich is scheduled to present a follow up report at 11:00 a.m. at the Bolivar Safety Center.
