Financial investigation at Sanford Center continues


BEMIDJI—A full financial review of the Sanford Center in Bemidji is continuing this week after an unauthorized use of a debit card by the facility's past executive director was discovered.

On Oct. 14, VenuWorks fired the Sanford Center's former director, Curtis Webb, from the same position at his job at the U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington, Ill. According to VenuWorks, the decision was made after officials discovered the debit card usage during a routine financial check.

At a meeting of the Sanford Center's Advisory Board on Monday, current Executive Director Jeff Kossow said once the discovery was made, facility management in Bemidji immediately sent financial information to VenuWorks' main office in Ames, Iowa. Kossow said the review will continue this week with VenuWorks' forensic auditor Mike Piehl coming to Bemidji to check the records with Sanford Center Director of Finance Randy Miller.
