Audit: golf course mismanagement
A newly released audit accuses Monroe County of mismanaging three golf courses, costing taxpayers $250,000.
The audit was released Monday, but 13 WHAM was first to address the questionable spending in a Waste Watch Investigation in November of 2013.
According to New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, county officials hired the company, Tindale Incorporated, in 1997 to manage Churchville, Durand Eastman and Genesee Valley golf courses.
DiNapoli said, despite complaints of deteriorating conditions, county officials failed to enforce the contract.
The audit claims Tindale was supposed to spend taxpayer dollars on upkeep, but pocketed the money instead.
Tindale is also accused of not providing the proper paperwork on deposits.
The contract with Tindale runs through the end of the year.
