PEDC discusses current investigation

By  | 

PARIS, TX-- The investigation into the Paris Economic Development Corporation still has many unanswered questions.

PEDC board member Rebecca Clifford stated she still has not received a report from Defenbaugh and Associates. Defenbaugh told the PEDC they would have the report finalized by July 28th.

The PEDC says they are going to request they get it on July 22nd, so they can review the report before being presented to the city council.

The board also says they are going to process a check, but they will not pay the firm until they receive a report.

The firm was hired after the city council received an anonymous letter in March alleging misconduct in the PEDC. The City Attorney says the FBI found no criminal activity.
