CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -

During today's budget session, City Councilman Larry Grohn grilled the administration on why about 30 percent of the recreation center's inventory has been identified as missing or couldn't be accounted for.

Last week, Grohn said he asked City Auditor Stan Sewell to investigate the last three years of inventory going in and out of the city's 17 recreational centers.

Sewell identified that several of the recreational center's staff weren't keeping track of where some of the equipment including computers, cameras and sporting equipment, were going. Sewell said the study found several of the staffers weren't doing what is required by law to monitor the equipment.

In light of the findings, Grohn questioned how the city can justify adding more funding to the recreational centers for the mayor's initiatives including adding more reading programs at the centers.

    Good Tuesday.  We are all under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY and some of us under a WIND CHILL ADVISORY through the day. It will be cold all day with high temperatures only reaching the upper 20s and low 30s.  These high temps will be reached early on at about noon, and then temps will be dropping through the afternoon as a cold front works through.
