BROOKFIELD, Conn. — The town of Brookfield has a shortfall of $3.3 million on its books — but the police and the FBI have both declined to investigate, according to the News-Times.
The town discovered the shortfall three years ago, but it was not disclosed to the public until last month, First Selectman Steve Dunn told the News-Times.
Controller Bill Leverence said a an audit last year blamed the shortfall on unsold bonds that were credited to the town's books, while several capital projects were financed out of pocket, the News-Times said.
Leverence also blamed poor accounting practices during a time that the town was focused on overspending by the school system, the News-Times said.
