Park Board: Forensic Audit Ongoing, Charges Not Anticipated

The head of the Springfield Park Board does not believe criminal charges will result from an investigation into unauthorized payments made to the park district’s former executive director and others.


Board president Leslie Sgro says Mike Stratton has reimbursed the district for nearly $3,000 in salary advances and other payments he received.


But Stratton and others also benefited from a policy he implemented that allowed workers to cash in unused vacation time… a policy that was not authorized by the park board.


More than $165,000 was paid out in a two-year period before the board discovered the policy change… which is now being rescinded.


The board plans a forensic audit of its books… while it also starts looking for a new executive director.
