   An official with the office of State Auditor Stacey Pickering was in Grenada City Hall on Thursday, and told Interim City Manager Charles “Jo Jo” Weathers that a letter stating the outcome of the criminal audit is forthcoming.
   Officials with the state auditor’s office visited Grenada City Hall several times over the past month, but the office did not respond to numerous requests for information from the GrenadaStar, other than to confirm that possible criminal activity was being investigated.
   Weathers said that conversations between personnel at City Hall and state officials have been amicable. He also said that he would notify the GrenadaStar when the letter arrives.  

Filling Positions
   By the end of this month, the City of Grenada should have a new chief of police and a new city clerk.
   Weathers said Friday that conducting the searches hasn’t been easy, but he’s narrowing the field, particularly in the search for a police chief.
   After conducting a first round of interviews, Weathers said, he had eliminated seven of nine candidates for the chief’s spot.
   “I can’t tell you their names, but I will say that one is local and another is from out of town,” said Weathers.
   Grenada began a national search for a new chief of police in early July, when Chief James Fox retired.
   Weathers told the GrenadaStar earlier this month that one of the nine candidates was from Columbus, and another was from DeSoto County.
