Audit Concludes Corn Palace Funds Were Mishandled

Audit Concludes Corn Palace Funds Were Mishandled

A state audit has concluded that the former director of the Corn Palace tourist attraction in Mitchell mishandled money.

The audit says former director Mark Schilling routinely counted money from cash registers alone in his office, failed to keep proper financial records and misused a city credit card on multiple occasions.

The report says one occasion was when Schilling made more than $3,500 in improperly documented charges for a trip to Las Vegas to attend a music awards show.

Mayor Ken Tracy asked for Schilling's resignation after he was shown initial results of the audit earlier this month. Schilling told The Associated Press he didn't think he'd done anything wrong.

The state Division of Criminal Investigation is looking into whether any laws were broken.
