A Southeast Texas town has to prove how it spent federal money for Hurricane Ike damages
KFDM News - An Southeast Texas city has come under fire recently, as it works to produce records showing how two-million dollars worth of federal recovery money was spent after Hurricane Ike.
Poor record keeping in LaMarque has city officials scrambling to account for the funds.
