HARRISBURG (WSIL) -- For the past few weeks News 3 has received tips about money missing from the Harrisburg Water Department.

We've been digging deeper into those claims and now know more than $1,300 in cash is gone.

Illinois State Police are investigating that missing money, and the Harrisburg City Council held a closed door meeting Thursday morning to discuss what's going on.

Following that meeting, Harrisburg Mayor John McPeek told News 3 the water department was missing $1,387.24.

McPeek says the city has implemented new protocols that go into effect immediately, including:

  • New deposit procedures
  • A city hall sign in sheet

Council member Roger Angelly tells News 3 the water department made sure all deposits were done according to procedure.

Mayor McPeek couldn't offer further comment at this time due to the ongoing ISP investigation.

Stay with News 3 as we continue looking into what happened at the water department.
