Morgan City Housing Authority Comes Under Fire
An audit conducted by the Legislative Auditor's Office indicates the Morgan City Housing Authority improperly paid out more than $550,000 in bonuses to employees during a six year period. The payments occurred between November 2007 and March 2013. The audit says that Housing Manager Tori Johnson may violated state and federal law by creating false public records and paying herself with public funds. According to the audit other employees may have broken various laws by knowingly receiving payments they were not entitled to.
