Ohio Auditor: Greenville Public Library didn’t have proper documents for $672 in expenses

GREENVILLE —The Greenville Public Library did not maintain proper supporting documentation for $672 spent during 2015 and 2016, according to a news release issued by the Ohio Auditor of State on Tuesday.

 An audit released by the state auditor identified six expenditures totaling $514 made at food establishments during 2016:


  • Brenda’s Beanery: $168
  • D’Allesios: $154
  • Montage Cafe: $98.74
  • Papa John’s Pizza: $49.46
  • Eikenberry’s IGA: $25.74
  • Subway: $18.50

    The news release states the library was unable to provide proper supporting documentation to show any of the spending served a proper public purpose. The library was also unable to support $158 in reimbursements issued to Fiscal Officer Susi Halley. 

    “Accountability is tossed out the window when governments leave holes in their records,” David Yost, the state auditor said in the news release. “The library needs to revise its spending practices to ensure every dollar spent has a detailed document to back it up.”  

    Auditors issued a $672 finding for recovery against Halley because she authorized the expenditures. She and Director John Vehre repaid the full amount during the audit, according to the state auditor’s office.
