Mayor Briley alerts state comptroller of 'potential illegal conduct' by Collier Engineering

Nashville Mayor David Briley on Friday notified the Tennessee state comptroller of "potential illegal conduct" from one of the city's top engineering contractors following a Tennessean report on questionable billings from the company.

He also said the city is "prepared to fully cooperate" if the comptroller's office decides to pursue an investigation.

In a Friday letter, Briley alerted Tennessee Comptroller Justin Wilson to evidence that Collier Engineering, a Metro street-paving contractor, billed the city for work while the billing employees attended an NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament game on March 16, 2018, in the company's suite in Bridgestone Arena.

Mayor cites state law on government fraud

As a public official, Briley is required by state law to report possible unlawful conduct to the comptroller.
