Midwestern IU gives preliminary OK to changes in use of credit cards, submitting expenses

| Wednesday, May 22, 2013, 10:03 p.m.

The Midwestern Intermediate Unit 4 board of directors gave preliminary approval on Wednesday night to changes in how employees can use IU credit cards and submit expenses for payment.

The changes come in the wake of Cecelia Yauger's resignation in April as executive director after she charged private dinners and personal expenses to her IU credit card. The intermediate unit serves school districts in Butler, Lawrence and Mercer counties.

The changes are intended to help the IU keep better track of expenses submitted by employees for reimbursement, officials said.

The board would have a month to amend the proposal before taking a final vote in June.

Officials said an audit is still being conducted on Yauger's credit card statements to determine which were valid for IU business.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
