Morgan Twp. Deficit
(2008-03-13)
(WOUB) - Morgan Township in Gallia County is facing a deficit of nearly 16-thousand-dollars.

According to an audit released Thursday by State Auditor Mary Taylor, the township's financial activity was not properly recorded during the fiscal years of 2005 and 2006.

The audit states that township officials did not identify the source of all public funds, nor how the money was spent.

Taylor is recommending that officials begin to identify ways to reduce spending and improve efficiency to eliminate the deficit.

Other issues outlined in the audit were also monitoring the accuracy of financial reports and balancing the books in a timely manner.
