Investigators Probe $1 Million Salt Lake Arts Funding Irregularities

Salt Lake County investigators are looking into charges of “$1 million of allegedly misspent taxpayer funds in the county’s Center for the Arts Division. Officials admit the investigation has uncovered more than $1 million in discrepancies, blaming most of it on shabby accounting practices. Whistle-blowers have also alleged, however, the unauthorized taking of equipment from county facilities and liberties taken on expense reports for entertaining and other questionable spending practices.”
