Hardin Co. Accounting Troubles

Expenses in Hardin County’s highway and public trust fund exceeded appropriations by about $310,000 at the end of the last fiscal year, according to an audit by the state comptroller’s office.

Two schools funds had a similar problem. Spending in the general purpose and school federal projects funds outpaced appropriations by a total of almost $26,000.

The schools employee insurance fund had a cash overdraft of $5,700 and a fund deficit of $13,600, based on having incurred more claims than the premiums could cover. Auditors said that money from the general purpose fund was later used to cover the deficit.
