Hello all, I've been gobbling up all your advice from my previous posts and trying to implement it. Now I'm afraid I've uncovered an even more serious situation, and would welcome more advice. I'll try and keep it brief and drama free.
It appears our accounts are short by a little less than a thousand dollars.
I know some of this money has been spent inappropriately by the CM I have now replaced.
I was not aware of how much it was, where it came from, what it was spent on, or that the decision to disburse it was made only by him until yesterday... a day after I officially took over as the new CM.
I feel I am now on the hook for this, as the new, incoming CM. I think the right thing to do is the bring the records I have, the information I'm sure of, and my suspicions about the rest to our council, with our committee chair in tow and see where it goes. And I think if the CC disagrees r refuses, I should resign and go to council anyway. Someone needs to be made aware of these missing funds, and aware of how at least some of them were spent and by who.
I know that's not a lot of detail, but I'd appreciate your advice.
