Missouri State Auditor Tom Schweich has issued a scathing audit of the City of Brentwood.
From failing to get competitive bids to lax documentation, the report found the city’s business practices are riddled with holes.
Brentwood got a grade of “poor” in the audit, the lowest the state auditor can give.
“We found eight problem areas and 21 issues, which is a lot for a municipality, in fact I’m not sure I can think of one where we had more,” Schweich said. “The whole city needs to tighten up its controls.”
