ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A resolution calling for a state audit of St. Louis city government under debate in the city’s board of aldermen. Alderman Joe Vaccaro says voters urged him to propose the resolution.

“Do I think that there’s things that I would love to see looked at? Yes. But do I think it’s a rats’ nest? No,” he says.

Alderwoman Carol Howard says the city doesn’t have an extra $2 million to pay for an audit right now, and the money might be better spent elsewhere.

“An audit isn’t going to change. We’re not going to find the person walking out with the pot of gold,” she says.

In addition to the aldermanic resolution, a citizens group is gathering signatures also asking for a state audit of St. Louis city government.
