Officials put on leave
(WOUB) - Two officials at the Belmont County Health Department have been put on paid administrative leave after the use of about $250,000 in public money has come into question.

Health Board member Doctor Troy Balgo says Director Harold Vermillion and Director of Nursing Kathy Yeater are on leave pending an independent investigation.

A 2005 state audit examined the use of grant money by the health department and found the money was not used properly.

The health department was asked to repay the money to the state.

Balgo says the way employees were paid for extra time worked is being examined.

He says the independent investigation will get underway Tuesday.
