Ponder executive Secretary explained in an accompanying letter that the audit was request d by s. Glen Wells who became superintendent of roads sell. I. He was elected in the August election. The report was directed to Wells s. W. Doty county judge and members of county court. The conditions revealed Are of disturbing nature. It is apparent that for a number of years the annual Road expenditures and Obi Gallons have substantially exceeded the budget adopted by tha quarterly county court. Moreover the budget actually adopted from year to year Seema to have enforced Little if any restraint on the actual spending. Apparently it has Little relationship to the Money actually available for Road purposes from the state gasoline tax and the county tax the letter pointed out. The report shows the deficit has been building up since 1951. But does not indicate any illegal use of the funds. The whole tone of Tho audit is poor management and disregard for the the report declares that Only s842.09 was in the Highway fund when Wells took office sept. 1. Against this balance there existed debts totalling at least 052.25. The Road funds were in the red on sept. 1, not less than 5481.210.16. The report shows. Nothing Short of a financial transfusion can bring renewed life and usefulness of these the auditor says. The debts consisted of floating warrants drawn against non exist ent funds in the amount of 259.60 open accounts charged against the department amounting to. According to the last figures s79.897.65 notes payable to three Banks in the county in the amount of s123.500 and accrued interest on the notes amounting to 81 395 the audit shows. The report expresses doubt that the Road superintendent or the county judge has authority to pay interest on warrants cashed by local Banks and held purely As a Mailer of accommodation. These warrants were issued with reckless disregard of the fact there was no Money in the trustee s office to pay them or Little Likely Lood of there being any available n the foreseeable the re port said. The county Road budget for 1954 s s295.000. During the period from january 1 to August 31, Road War ants were written totalling the report in commenting on its spending in 1954, said it was evidently with the desire in mind to use Apall the current Road budget before the newly elected Road superintendent took this left Only to operate the roads to pay salaries and All expenses for the remaining four months of the.
