In the Highway Superintendent's office, auditors found:
Deficiencies in purchasing procedures
Employee travel and work performed for other governmental entities
An employee used department funds to purchase fuel for her personal vehicle
In the Director of Schools' office, auditors found:
The federal projects and education capital projects funds had cash overdrafts and deficits in their unassigned fund balances
Problems with the office's budget operations and its use of federal grant funds, which resulted in questionable expenditures
Auditors also discovered that Grundy County has no audit committee or centralized system of accounting, budgeting and purchasing.
"I am very concerned that Grundy County had so many findings in this audit," Comptroller Justin P. Wilson said. "I'm particularly concerned because 10 of the findings were identified in previous audits, but local officials apparently didn't take appropriate corrective action."
