Hearing Date Set For Former Emporia Official

Emporia - A preliminary hearing date is set for former Emporia city engineer Keith Beatty.

He faces charges of official misconduct and misuse of public funds over a 2006 road resurfacing project.

The Emporia Gazette reports prosecutors say Beatty knew truss structures known as "dowel baskets" weren't put in the street as required even though the construction company charged the city for them.

Beatty's preliminary hearing is set for August 5th.
