Relationship Between Official And Auto Repair Raises Questions

Nov 4, 2015

A special prosecutor in southwestern Illinois will review a levee district's repeated use of an auto body shop owned by its president. Madison County State's Attorney Tom Gibbons is seeking the independent review of the business relationship between the Metro East Sanitary District and Andy's Auto Body & Towing, a Madison company owned by district president Andy Economy. The district's executive director crashed his government-owned SUV five times in the past three years. The board president's towing shop repaired that car three times as part of more than $33,000 worth of work for the district in that time period. Madison County board chairman Alan Dunstan is calling for a broader review of the county's ethics and bidding policies.
