Davenport Requests Investigation, Fixes Problems with Accounts

Davenport firefighters show reporters how fast a Christmas tree burns.

Davenport has changed the way it maintains a few fire department bank accounts, following an investigation by the Iowa auditor. The city asked for it to examination of the Clothing and Fire Safety House accounts, from 2009 through 2014.

Finance Director, Brandon Wright, says firefighters pooled their money in these accounts to pay for clothes, food, and other items. And the accounts were managed by shift leaders, not by the city.

The auditor's office recommends the city finance department should maintain these accounts with Davenport City Council approval.
