Special Task Force, Randolph Park Meetings at Covington City Hall

Two meetings are scheduled at the same time at Covington City Hall on Monday.

The second meeting of the special Task Force to Restore Public Confidence in the City's Finances will convene at 6:30 p.m. on the 4th floor in the community development conference room.

The task force was assembled by the city commission following the arrest of former Finance Director Bob Due on suspicion that he stole what is now believed to be roughly $600,000 from the city coffers.

Members of the task force, led by retired Kenton Co. Judge Douglas Stephens, will work toward developing a plan to recover the lost funds and to ensure similar thefts do not happen again.

In addition to the criminal case against Due, who was ordered Friday to remain in the hospital following a second apparent suicide attempt, the Kentucky Auditor's office is also investigating.

The first task force meeting two weeks ago ended with a city commissioner shouting at another one in the middle of Seventh Street.

Meanwhile, also at 6:30 p.m., national experts will host a forum about the future plans for Randolph Park in the Commission Chambers on the first floor of City Hall.

Both meetings are open to the public.
