Abulance District Audit

One of the main findings involves compensation to the director and employees. Auditors say significant amounts of overtime have been paid to the director at varying rates. More than $19,000 in overtime went to the director of the Ambulance District between January 2008 and May of this year. Investigators also found thousands of dollars in vacation and sick leave were paid to various employees but they were not authorized by the personnel policies or employment contracts. The findings even show some employees were allowed to earn more annual and sick leave than allowed by contract or the Andrew County Ambulance District's personnel policy. Auditors also say supporting documentation for some credit and debit card transactions were missing, as were bid documentation as required by state law. The findings show three purchases that should have been bid went to a business owned by a board member. The state says accounting duties at the Andrew County Ambulance Board were not adequately segregated, and the district did not always comply with the state's open meeting sunshine law.
