Shreveport City Councilman Michael Corbin talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the news of an audit Shreveport's troubled water and sewer department, an audit he says that he and other council members were not aware of.


"A statement by Mayor Ollie Tyler doesn't appear to wash, as operations at Shreveport's water department became a major issue in the mayor's race.

"My administration is very transparent. More transparent than anybody else," Tyler proclaimed at the Southern Hills Business Association forum on August 6.

 But on that same day the city was sued over water and sewer, Tyler also told voters she would only order an external audit of the water department after she's re-elected, and only on condition that there were problems. Yet it turns out, an outside audit of the water department was already under way."
