Personal city government documents were easily accessible during a public auction. Buyers looking for city furniture were able to search through city payroll information, law enforcement reports and a variety of other documents which contained people's names, contact information and Social Security numbers. City employees admit the exposure was a mistake and removed the documents within an hour of notification. It is believed that the documents escaped from a stack that was scheduled to be burned.
