Auditors troubled over city's handling of $6.2M in federal grants

BALTIMORE —Auditors with the Baltimore City Comptroller's Office are questioning the Housing Authority of Baltimore City's handling of $6.2 million in federal grants.

Auditors said they find the lack of internal controls troubling, and there's concern that the city may have to pay some or all of the money back to the federal government.

The audit found discrepancies in the agency's handling of federal energy assistance grants it doled out to eligible low-income households.

"In this case, in our sample, we found 24 missing folders -- they didn't provide them for us -- and approximately 90 that had missing parts," City Auditor Robert McCarty said.

TROUBLED? ??WHY?? Just tell us who stole the money and move on. We pretty much know the answer.

I think every Little League organization around here needs to be audited.
