SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Salt Lake County Mayor Nancy Workman paid her daughter's boyfriend for redesigning the county's Web site -- work that never was done, a newspaper is reporting.

The Deseret Morning News says Workman ordered her chief administrative officer, David Marshall, to pay more than seven-thousand last year to a then-boyfriend of Aisza Workman Wilde.

Marshall was unimpressed by the boyfriend's ideas for making the county's Web site more interactive, and the project was dropped.

But then Marshall got a bill from Mark Hofstetler months later -- and he refused to pay it. But the mayor tells the newspaper she ordered the bill paid, even though -- quote -- "we didn't get our money's worth."

The mayor says it was just one of those things that didn't work out.

The Deseret Morning News published the story today.

It's the second questionable transaction involving the mayor. She faces felony charges of using taxpayer money to hire bookkeepers who helped her daughter at the South Valley Boys and Girls Club in Midvale.

Workman took money from a restricted account meant for health care services, and never bothered to get the county council's approval. She calls it a "technical" problem and accused District Attorney David Yocom of being out to get here.

Yocom is believed to be investigating this new case, but he's refusing comment.

Workman was due at a preliminary hearing tomorrow on charges of misappropriating funds for the Midvale club.
