Midwestern IU increases financial oversight on credit cards

Friday, June 28, 2013, 7:51 p.m.

The Midwestern Intermediate Unit IV board has beefed up financial oversight in the wake of allegations that its former executive director misused an agency credit card.

The board approved legislation on Wednesday that would strip the executive director of any authority to approve expense accounts. Documentation is required for expenses, and the business office would have to approve the expenses.

The intermediate unit also will audit credit cards annually. An audit of the credit card statements identified more than $71,000 in purchases at retail stores, restaurants and other establishments as questionable or undocumented.

Grove City police said this week they have the audit and continue to investigate.

Former Executive Director Cecelia Yauger's attorney has maintained her innocence. She resigned in April after questions arose about her spending.

The intermediate unit covers Butler, Lawrence and Mercer counties.
