Ocean Pines moves forward with second phase of forensic audit

OCEAN PINES, Md. – The Board of Directors in Ocean Pines are continuing their search for the over 20,000 dollars of missing deposits.

Recently community leaders approved a second phase of a forensic audit.

They say the second phase will now focus on the community’s public works department.

We’re told with all the losses Ocean Pines experienced over the past 2 years, residents have raised concerns so community leaders are taking action to make sure residents feel their voices are being heard and taken seriously.

John Bailey, the Ocean Pines General Manager said,  “There were some rumors of some other things that had occurred previously in the public works department with contracts and purchase orders that left an uncomfortable feeling among the residents and the board so staff said okay, let’s get this resolved.”

We’re told the forensic audit will help make sure finances are not being mishandled within the department.

When that audit returns we’ll be sure to update this article.
