SLOAN, Iowa (AP) — State auditors say more than $13,000 was not properly deposited in the city of Sloan’s bank account from customer utility bills.
Officials in Sloan, a city of 1,000 people about 23 miles south of Sioux City, sought a state audit after they became concerned about some deposits made by Laurie Kubly, the city’s former utility billing clerk .
Kubly was placed on administrative leave on March 13 and resigned a week later.
Auditors say some of the city’s largest utility customers including a local bank and a car wash were overbilled. Some of the extra money collected from them was used to pay bills for other customers who were not billed for utilities. Auditors also say cash payments appear to be missing.
No charges have been filed.
