A recent letter from the state auditor’s office points out areas where the Van Buren School District could better manage its finances. The Courier reports stays at a “trendy fashion-forward loft-style hotel” for four board members cost the district an average of $319 per person per night. Auditor Dave Yost called the expenses “excessive.”
The items listed in the letter didn’t rise to the level of a citation. That means the district isn’t required to follow the recommendations. Superintendent Tim Myers tells the newspaper the district will use the letter to establish better practices.
Myers said the reason the board members stayed at the hotel for the conference is because it was one of the few with vacancy near a conference at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.
