Belton ISD audits contractor accused of over billing

A Temple construction company is accused of overcharging a school district near San Antonio. And now, Belton ISD leaders are asking questions.  

The Temple-based company was contracted to build a number of schools in Belton.  That's why Belton ISD hired an auditor to conduct an internal review on the work that Baird Williams Construction is doing.

Meanwhile, Comal ISD is set to get a refund of nearly $6 million from the construction company. Once the Belton Superintendent heard about what happened in Comal, she says they hired an auditor to take a closer look at their numbers. That was back in December.
Superintendent Susan Kincannon says, " We don't have the results of the audit yet and we're waiting on our auditor to conclude their work with Baird Williams Construction. We won't be able to do that until they have all the documentation they need from Baird Williams Construction."

District leaders say they've made three requests to get the paperwork and they haven't gotten it yet.  But the CEO of Baird Williams says the district is holding up the process.   

Blair Williams says his companies' requests to meet with Belton ISD leaders to finalize the audit have gone unanswered.  

Both parties say they aren't aware of any specific billing issues. The audit is merely a precautionary measure.  News Channel 25 does hope to share the results, once the audit is finished.
