OKLAHOMA CITY —
“Unfortunately, due to insufficient evidence supporting the developer’s reported project expenditures, we were unable to conclude as to the overall allowability of development expenses,” auditors said. “Only 32 percent of developer expenses submitted by the city of Choctaw were supported by detailed documentation.”
Auditors said they asked the developer for additional documentation, but the developer refused to provide it.
Choctaw Mayor Randy Ross said he could not comment on the dispute because of the pending litigation, but he said construction is continuing on the Walmart Supercenter in Choctaw. Officials expect the roof to be put on the building in December and are anticipating an opening in April or May, Ross said.
