A state audit of the Van Buren school district’s books has found some mistakes. The Courier reports Ohio Auditor David Yost issued findings for recovery against the district treasurer and three board members.
The audit noted Treasurer Cheryl Swisher overpaid herself $2,748 for her 2011-2012 contract. Swisher was not employed by the district for the first pay period of the year, but paid herself for it anyway. The money was paid back to the school’s general fund last November.
The audit also found that in 2012, board members Kenneth Rowles, Edward Van Horn, and Jeff Salisbury were paid for going to 13 meetings. Rowles and Van Horn only attended nine meetings, and Salisbury attended 11 meetings. They have paid the money back to the general fund as well.
The audit examined finances from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2013.
