Should Rockwood City Council have approved the penalties and interest paid to the IRS?
Some on Rockwood City Council felt the payments should have come to council for a vote.
“It is legal. It is a general operating expenditure,” said city attorney Greg Leffew about whether the city council had to approve it first.
Councilman Mike Freeman disagreed.
“To me that is not a general operating expenditure,” Freeman said.
“I would like to know where the money came from,” Councilman Bill Thompson asked.
