KMOV - A new audit of the Northeast Ambulance and Fire Protection District in St. Louis County shows the district is a mess.
A large crowd showed up to hear about State Auditor Susan Montee's scathing 56-page report.
Among the long list of problems are budgets that violate state law, contracts handed out without any bidding, excessive payments, and unnecessary spending.
Montee also accuses the board of illegally using district employees and equipment to campaign for a bond issue. She also accused the board of spending taxpayer money to keep put that issue on the ballot four times, even though it kept getting defeated.
