NASHVILLE — The former city recorder for Collinwood allegedly stole nearly $100,000 from taxpayers in only a one-year span and used that money on herself, according to an audit released Monday by state Comptroller Justin Wilson.

Former employee Melissa Broome allegedly took $94,426 by withholding cash collected for utility payments, swimming pool fees and property taxes, according to the audit.

Tennessee Watchdog contacted a woman by the same name who lives in Collinwood through her Facebook page, but she didn’t respond to our message before publication. Other efforts to contact Broome were unsuccessful.
