Former Beaverton Clerk Could Face Charges For Fraud

The former clerk of a Northern Michigan city could face charges after city officials found more evidence of fraud.

The Beaverton city manager says the fraud investigation started in September in Gladwin County.

Former clerk Dana Weiss resigned in the same month.

The manager says someone wrote checks to themselves, and cleared them with the bank.

He also says they forged invoices and used cover checks, totaling around $16,000.

Originally, the city reached an agreement that the clerk would pay restitution and not be charged.

Now, he says charges could be back on the table.

After their investigation, he says he will turn it over to state police.
