SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- He's the latest charged in Salt Lake County's vehicle-abuse scandal and now he's getting a pay cut.
Randy Allen resigned earlier this year as the chief financial officer after admitting to hauling his boat to Lake Powell twice using a county-owned vehicle. He was then given a merit job at elevated pay but this week was charged with misdemeanor communications fraud for allegedly using his county-issued gas card to buy fuel for personal use.
Yesterday, Acting Mayor Alan Dayton slashed his salary from just over 92-thousand-dollars to about 72-thousand-dollars a year effective October first.
Dayton is standing in for Mayor Nancy Workman who was placed on administrative leave while facing felony charges of misuse of public money.
