Duncan approves hiring legal counsel over audit

DUNCAN, Okla._The Duncan City Council approved hiring special legal counsel to help look over the city's audits during this week's City Council meeting.

The City of Duncan learned of nearly $8 million in misspent funds during an audit of their 2011 fiscal year. City officials are now working to make sure a mistake like that does not go unseen. Duncan Mayor Ritchie Dennington says the 2013 and 2014 budgets are almost complete. He says changes were made in the 2014 audit and the city wants to ensure everything is correct when the audits are completed, which is expected to be in October. 

The assistant city manager says adding the lawyer is one approach the city is taking in order to prevent any future problems with where city dollars are going.
