The Covington City Commission voted Tuesday to accept $165,587.53 in restitution from the legal counsel of a former city employee.

A federal grand jury indicted Allison Donaldson on four counts of wire fraud and three counts of aggravated identity theft in September.

According to a press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, from February 2020 through February 2022, Donaldson made over $150,000 in purchases for “herself and her home” using an employee credit card.

The purchases include repairs for a Mercedes Benz, Crate & Barrel furniture and designer counter stools.

Donaldson was an administrative manager for the Public Works Department from 2005 until 2022.

Tuesday’s resolution covers the costs of the investigations the city carried out and the sum of stolen money the investigation uncovered. The case is ongoing.
