Lake Forest Park Water District (District) Investigation into Misappropriation of Public Funds.
Lake Forest Park, WA, (Feb. 19, 2013)
The District, The State Auditor’s Office (SAO) and Law Enforcement have conducted an investigation into the misappropriation of District Maintenance and Petty cash accounts by the former Office Administrator. The District identified possible misappropriation and requested the involvement of the SAO and Law Enforcement in January of 2011. Over the two year period the District has cooperated to ensure a thorough investigation. While the District is confident in the findings, any further questions regarding charges should be directed to SAO and Law Enforcement.
The District has a crime insurance policy as a member of the Water and Sewer Risk Management Pool (WSRMP). The District is in the process of filling a claim through WSRMP, which includes sufficient coverage to protect the District and its ratepayers against losses incurred due to employee dishonesty and crime.
Lake Forest Park Water District has been proud to serve pure, chemical free water to the residents of Lake Forest Park since 1948.
