Fire Protection Licensing Board Director Resigns
State records show the executive director of the Arkansas Fire Protection Licensing Board resigned after an audit alleged she improperly charged more than $15,000 to her state credit card.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported Saturday that Catherine Gray resigned April 24 - the day before a special board meeting in which preliminary information from the state Office of Accounting's Internal Audit Section was to be presented.
A phone number listed for Gray had been disconnected.
A draft report says auditors found $8,519 in personal purchases on a state credit card issued to Gray and that $6,907 in purchases lacked proper documentation.
The fire board monitors the servicing and installation of portable fire extinguishers, fixed fire-suppression systems and fire sprinkler systems and registers and licenses businesses and persons providing such services.
