Specifically, the investigation showed that a city-issued credit card was used to pass on transportation expenses, airport parking, and unaccredited law school tuition for an independent counsel, among other fees.

The money was voluntarily reimbursed to the city from an undisclosed consulting firm.
“We take the use of our taxpayer money very seriously,” said the prosecuting attorney. Not only did Glotzbach break the public’s trust, his actions are in direct contradiction to what we stand for as public servants. It is essential that the bad actors know that this behavior is not acceptable in Placer County.”
