PA Auditor General: Hanover Area Misusing Finances

HANOVER TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- A school district in Luzerne County is now in some trouble with the Pennsylvania Auditor General.

Auditor General Eugene DePasquale's office recently conducted an audit of the Hanover Area School District.

The audit shows that the district grossly overpaid vendors by hundreds of thousands of dollars between 2013 and 2017.

One of those vendors was a busing company owned by the parents of the school board's president.

The audit included more than 20 recommendations to help Hanover Area improve its financial management, including the development of an anti-nepotism policy.

    Hmmmm………”misusing funds” seems to be a perennial issue in PA. What ever became of that 4.? BILLION that was siphoned away from roads to the PASP? If it’s good for the goose……and, so forth.

    Wow, looks like I should start my “no generally accepted accounting principals used here” rant. I never thought I had to go on that rant for school district but here we are. Wonder why no one picked up these irregularities during regular audits. Are they even auditing the books?

    I’m a stone cold Republican but I really like this Depasquale guy. He’s doing his job and he’s doing it very well. Cleaning up schools, fire departments, cities, etc.. Just ask Scranton how effective Mr. Depasquale is. Isn’t that right Mayor?
