State recommends no action against city attorney

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) – The state comptroller says his investigation into the city attorney is over.

He recommends no action be taken against Mike McMahan.

Issues were raised in June about McMahan billing the City of Chattanooga for work done by his private law firm.

He was ordered to stop.

The state comptroller's investigation found the practice had been going on since 1962.

But there was no blatant attempt to defraud the city or taxpayers.

He recommended the city put the issue to rest with no action against McMahan.
