BRENTWOOD, Mo. (AP) — The mayor of Brentwood and a city resident who submitted a petition are both seeking a state audit of the St. Louis County town.

Mayor Pat Kelly sent a letter Friday to state Auditor Tom Schweich. It seeks the audit after issues were raised concerning embezzlement and questionable overtime for fire department employees.

Resident Maureen Saunders also submitted a petition for an audit.

A spokesman for the state auditor says the audit would cost $50,000 to $70,000 and would be paid for by the city.
