Dixon city leaders are trying to move forward from the comptroller scandal that left them with a more than $50 million loss. Today the city council voted to hire two interim comptrollers but some residents are frustrated with the decision.
Prosecutors allege former Dixion, IL comptroller Rita Crundwell stole $53 million to support her horse business and lavish lifestyle by transferring city funds to a secret account.
It is unknown if Crundwell’s farm manager and boyfriend, Jim McKillips, knew about the alleged theft.
Her horses were handed over to US Marshals after a judge’s forfeiture order was received late last week.
