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.
