LPD Is Under Investigation

The Town of Livingston’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen met in regular session last night and heard about a recent malfeasance from the Livingston Police Department (LPD).

City Attorney John Meadows informed the board the funds were noticed to have gone missing from the LPD; however, according to Meadows, Police Chief Greg Etheredge reported the missing funds as soon as he noticed something was wrong.

“The police chief himself notified the district attorney to this fact,” Meadows said.

At the time of press, it is unknown how much or what is actually missing.

According to Meadows, 13th Judicial District Attorney General Bryant C. Dunaway has been alerted along with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Comptroller’s Office.

Meadows stated this is purely informational to make the board aware that the investigation is taking place.

In other business, the board approved entering into a contract with Water Leak Relief in order to make up for lost revenue from customer water leakages, while also providing customers with financial relief from high bills caused by water leaks—despite prior skepticism from some board members.

Alderman Kelly Coleman explained that after further research, he supports the city entering into a contract for this program.
