Blair County ended 2012 more than $1.1-million in the red.
That’s according to the latest audit on county spending that was presented to the board Tuesday morning in Hollidaysburg. David Scott of Young Oakes Brown & Company told the commissioners that the deficit was the result of falling revenues and several unexpended expenses.
Scott says the audit should serve as a warning to the county about controlling spending.
The commissioners say overtime at the county jail, increased healthcare costs, and lack of revenues in the Cost and Fines and Domestic Relations departments led to the shortfall.
