A consultant hired by the Evansville City Council is accused of not doing the work he was hired to do while still collecting a monthly paycheck.
An audit last year found some issues with the city's finances. So, the city council hired David Garrett to serve as an extra set of eyes. His contract requires that he report to the council on a monthly basis.
But on Wednesday, 14 News learned that so far this year, Garrett has not provided any reports, yet he gets a monthly check for over $1,600 of taxpayer money. That's more than the city council members make.
"When is the public going to be outraged with those people getting paid for not doing anything?" asked councilman Jonathan Weaver.
14 News contacted David Garrett on Wednesday night by phone. He refused to answer any questions, only referring us to John Friend.
