Auditing Tourism Money

Kentucky State Auditor Mike Harmon released an audit Thursday morning raising concerns about the spending of some tourism money by the city of Salyersville.The audit found the city provided limited oversight of payments from the tourism account to contractors, including duplicate payments made to Mayor Pete Shepherd’s son and the Magoffin-Salyersville Housing Authority between June 2017 and June 2018. It also found the city used funds from the account for non-tourism related expenses without input or approval from the Tourism Commission, which has not met since 2009.
