City councilmen who raised concerns about after-school program are running against mayor in election.

South Salt Lake has hired an outside auditor to look into concerns raised by two city councilmen about funding of a before- and after-school program.

Councilman Ben Pender, who will be overseeing the audit, said Mayor Cherie Wood recommended the step.

“Somebody has already been hired and already began working on the audit,” Pender said. “It’s actually a pretty in-depth audit that we’re doing on the entire [Promise South Salt Lake] program, so it stems back several years and [is] looking at very specific things that some of the council had brought up.”
