PERRYSBURG, Ohio (WTVG) - The state Auditor’s office is investigating the City of Perrysburg.

A spokesman for the Auditor’s office told 13abc Monday morning there is an active investigation from the Auditor’s Special Investigations Unit.

No further details on the investigation have been released. The Auditor’s office said to 13abc: “We will have no further comment at this time on this ongoing investigation”

Just last week city law director Kathryn Sandretto resigned. At this time there is no information linking that resignation to this Auditor investigation.

“The City has been aware of the state auditor’s investigation since March of 2022 and the mayor has instructed all departments to cooperate with any requests for information made as part of the investigation,” the City of Perrysburg said in a statement Monday. “The City has not been informed of any violations so far and looks forward to a resolution.”

A written complaint started this whole investigation. We don’t know which Perrysburg employees penned the letter but it certainly caught the right peoples’ attention.

It’s a letter taking shots at the work performance and conduct of the Perrysburg Human Resources Manager, City Manager and now former City Attorney.

The letter that began this investigation was originally written to former city councilwoman Deborah Born. She turned it over the Ohio Attorney General’s office, who then turned it over to the state Auditor’s office in early March.
