Breaking news out of Macon, with Mike Stucka of the Telegraph on it:
Bibb County Commissioner Joe Allen is calling for a federal investigation into the Bibb County school system’s dealings with the Macon Promise Neighborhood program.
Allen made the request during a Tuesday morning news conference at the Bibb County Courthouse.
“The allegations that surround the school board must be addressed by an outside authority with subpoena power,” Allen said. “These allegations must be investigated immediately by a federal authority, as the facts show a possible misuse of federal funds, not to mention state and local money as well.”
The Telegraph has been investigating whether the Superintendent doubled the amount authorized by the school board for the program. Click the link above, give Mike his page views, and get the rest of the details.
