Audit: Port Angeles official didn’t pay for $40,000 in city programs for her kids

A former coordinator of recreational programs at the city of Port Angeles did not pay for $40,000 worth of after-school and summer programs for up to four of her children, according to a state audit released Monday.

At least one of the unidentified coordinator’s kids participated in the youth programs every month between September 2006 and August 2013, according to the audit. The cost of all those programs added up to $40,775. The coordinator paid $655.

The loss is significant because the annual revenue for the Parks and Recreation Department at the city of about 20,000 is only $807,300.

“The Park and Recreation Department did not monitor to ensure all amounts due for youth services were received. This weakness allowed the misappropriation to occur without being detected in a timely manner,” according to the audit, which was initiated after the city contacted the State Auditor’s Office in September.

In a response included in the audit report, the city agreed with the findings of the audit.

A new recreational coordinator is about to be hired, according to the city.
