I could post many stories of government officials arrested for misuse of a credit card. Once it’s in their pocket they “accidently” use to to fill their car with gas. Charges for food appear because they are discussing city business with a friend. Trips that suddenly wouldn’t have been taken without being able to “charge” it are suddenly mandatory.
Of course the minutes don’t exist yet, but Tuesday night on the agenda was getting credit cards for Trustees/Staff:
If citizens in Carlock aren’t looking at the credit card statements I guarantee there will be “accidental” misuse. Trustees have no reason for a credit card, but they sure can create one.
So, who is going to keep track of the charges?
If citizens don’t “trust but verify” eventually you will have no reason to trust.
