During his weekly radio show on KPEL this morning, Guillory announced that his administration will be submitting a formal request to the Louisiana State Police, asking for their assistance to investigate allegations of wrongdoing by some LUS employees who reportedly deleted company emails and records.
Guillory also confirmed that due to the seriousness of the tampering allegations in 2019, LUS offices' were actually raided last fall by local police to secure documents.
“LUS is a critical asset of Lafayette Consolidated Government, representing almost half of our financial activity,” said Mayor-President Guillory. “We have to be confident that we know everything that is happening -- operationally and financially at LUS” Guillory said. “That is why I am calling for a full forensic audit of LUS by CRI” Guillory continued. “We need an unbiased, independent view of the situation at LUS so that we can apply the right remedy, restore the confidence of ratepayers and assure its integrity for financial markets,” Guillory concluded.
