BRADENTON — After reviewing unauthorized spending related to a 2009 sales tax bond, the Manatee County School District staff counsel will turn over all related materials to law enforcement officials.
Staff attorney Mitchell Teitelbaum was asked in June to review the information by the district’s internal audit company, Shinn and Co. of Bradenton. At a Manatee County School Board meeting Tuesday, Teitelbaum said he is required to report the information to law enforcement for investigation.
“I have no choice as a matter of law,” Teitelbaum said.
It’ll now be up to law enforcement officials as to whether the investigation continues. Teitelbaum said he could not comment more, pending an investigation.
