MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) - Moss Point Mayor Billy Broomfield is calling for a forensic audit of the city in light of a state investigation into possible fraud and misappropriation of funds in the utility and police departments.

During Tuesday night's board of aldermen meeting, a vote to approve the audit was tabled after some aldermen suggested waiting until the state's investigation is complete.

Aldermen on the other side of the issue say it makes more sense for it all to be done at the same time. Unless a special meeting is called, the topic won't be revisited until the Dec. 6 meeting.
