Poor Spending Documentation Results in Village of Adelphi Finding for Recovery
For immediate release
Columbus – A $3,185 Finding for Recovery was included in a recent financial audit report of the Village of Adelphi in Ross County released by Auditor of State Keith Faber’s office for inadequate documentation.
“The use of taxpayer dollars comes with a lot of responsibility and its own set of rules for accountability,” said Auditor Faber. “The citizens of Adelphi deserve to know how the $3,000 was spent and how it serves a proper public purpose.”
The Village failed to provide documentation for a series of purchases between 2019 and 2020 at places like Menards, Young’s Food Town, and Amazon.
A Finding for Recovery was issued against Art Wilson, Former Fiscal Officer, and his bonding company, Ohio Plan Risk Management, Inc, in the amount of $3,185 in favor of the Village of Aldelphi’s General Fund in the amount of $263; in favor of the Village of Aldelphi’s Permissive Motor Vehicle Fund in the amount of $133; and in favor of the Village of Aldelphi’s Sewer Operating Fund in the amount of $2,789.
