"At the time of our audit, the City of Hazelwood, Missouri (City), estimated it had sustained approximately $3.3 million in damages from flooding in December 2015. We conducted this audit early in the grant process to identify areas where the City may need additional technical assistance and monitoring to ensure compliance with Federal requirements.
