A special joint meeting between the Paris Economic Development Corporation and the Paris City Council has been called for Tuesday, June 3rd at 5:30pm.

The purpose of the meeting is for the PEDC Chair, Rebecca Clifford, to report on the status of the PEDC investigation.  The PEDC board hired Defenbaugh & Associates of Dallas, to conduct a forensic investigation back in April.

This audit was the result of a March 10th recommendation from the previous Paris City Council, which voted 4-3 to request PEDC hire an outside audit firm in response to an anonymous letter. This anonymous letter raised concerns regarding a deal made in 2010 with Paris Warehouse Southwest and Rodgers Wade.

The joint meeting will be held in the City Council Chambers, located at 107 E. Kaufman Street.

The PEDC also has a Special Called Meeting earlier that day at 3pm to discuss current and future budget needs in the “Budget Workshop for Current FY 2013-14 and FY 2014-15.”  This 3pm meeting on Tuesday will be held at the Community Room of the Depot, located at 1125 Bonham Street.
