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

Published: Tuesday, May 16, 2017 @ 11:24 AM

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.

    Police: Miami Twp. officer hit on SB I-75 ‘awake but very sore’, driver jailed in Montgomery County

    Published: Saturday, April 21, 2018 @ 9:47 PM
    Updated: Sunday, April 22, 2018 @ 3:50 AM

    A crash involving a police officer on Southbound I-75 in Miami Township closed the interstate late Saturday, April 21, 2018.

    UPDATE @ 3:42 a.m.

    The man who police said struck a Miami Twp. police officer with his truck Saturday night while driving drunk has been identified.

    Adam Blackmore, 33, of Miamisburg was booked into Montgomery County Jail and faces OVI charges as well as traffic related offenses for the crash, according to Sgt. Matt Robinson of the Dayton Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

    UPDATE @ 2:05 a.m.

    All lanes reopened on southbound I-75 at OH 725 just after 2 a.m. after a series of crashes occurred Saturday around 9 p.m., according to Ohio State Highway Patrol.

    UPDATE @ 12:33 a.m.

    The driver of the white pickup truck suspected of driving drunk when he struck a Miami Twp. police officer on Interstate 75 is headed to Montgomery County Jail.

    “He’s going to be charged with driving off the roadway and drunk driving,” said Sgt. Frank Edward Simmons Jr. of the Dayton Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

    The driver struck the officer who was responding to a series of accidents in Miami Township, throwing him 10 to 12 feet into a grass area. He is being evaluated by hospital staff but sustained “soft tissue injuries” and “no broken bones,” Simmons said.

    Police are not releasing the name of the officer who was struck at this time.

    Everyone involved in the crashes that began just after 9 p.m. Saturday sustained non-life threatening injuries, according to Simmons.

    The first crash occurred when a semi and red impala came together, causing the impala to lose control, drive off the roadway and strike a light pole which knocked it into the roadway, Simmons said.

    An SUV then braked to avoid hitting the light pole, causing a Mercedes to strike the back of the SUV, according to Simmons.

    Simmons said Miami Twp. police then arrived on scene of the crashes and that’s when the officer was struck by the suspected drunk driver in the white pickup truck.

    The driver was traveling southbound, drove off the right side of the roadway, striking the officer.

    “It kind of hits close to home to let you know that this profession is inherently dangerous. When you throw an impaired driver into the mix, that makes things that much worse,” Simmons said. 

    UPDATE @ 12:20 a.m. (April 22)

    The driver of a white pickup truck that struck a Miami Twp. officer is suspected of driving while impaired, said Sgt. Frank Edward Simmons Jr. of the Dayton Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

    Traffic is moving on the southbound lanes of Interstate 75, and is expected to be totally reopened within the next hour.

    UPDATE @ 11:15 p.m.

    The Miami Twp. police officer who was struck by a pickup truck while outside his cruiser tonight most likely will be staying the night at Kettering Medical Center, police said.

    A police source at the hospital said the officer, who was not named, “is awake but very sore.”

    Southbound I-75 remains shut down at Ohio 725, and the backup at one point extended to the Dryden Road exit in Moraine.

    It is unclear how much longer the highway will remain closed, or when one lane will be opened to traffic, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Dayton Post.

    UPDATE @ 10:25 p.m.

    A Miami Twp. police officer was struck by a truck tonight while outside of his cruiser at a crash scene.

    All southbound I-75 lanes are shut down just before the Ohio 725 exit.

    The officer, whose name and condition was not immediately available, was taken from the scene to Kettering Medical Center.

    There was a series of three crashes tonight on the highway, the last involving the officer, according to the Montgomery County Regional Dispatch Center:

    At 9:20 p.m., a red sedan hit a pole, then at 9:22 p.m. a blue Subaru Forester crashed in the same area of near the Ohio 725 exit.

    At 9:29 p.m. the officer who responded to the first crashes was struck by an early 1990s Chevrolet truck, gray or silver. Troopers were with the truck at the 44 mile marker.

    All three crashes remain under investigation.
