Mitchell Mayor Ken Tracy says state investigators are determining whether the activity that led to Corn Palace Director Mark Schilling's resignation involved any crimes.
Schilling stepped down Monday after 13 years on the job. He says he has done nothing wrong.
Tracy says the state Division of Criminal Investigation is looking into the matter.
Tracy says he asked Schilling to resign in the wake of a state audit of Mitchell's city-owned tourist attraction. Results of that audit have not yet been released to the public, but Tracy says it found that "a number of policies and procedures" were not being followed.
Schilling says he hadn't seen the audit and declined comment on it.
