Auditor seeking $400 from former clerk
COLUMBUS – The Auditor of State of Ohio’s office recently issued a $400 Finding for Recovery against former Walnut Township zoning clerk Lisa Ety. The finding was also issued against the Ohio Township Association Risk Management Authority that had bonded Ety. The money will go into the township’s road and bridge fund.
The Finding for Recovery stated, “On August 28, 2008, the Township received $400 for the sale of scrap metal. Lisa Ety, the Township’s former Zoning Clerk, collected the proceeds for the sale; however, she failed to provide a duplicate deposit slip for the $400 deposit. In addition, the deposit did not appear in the Township’s receipt ledger and bank statement.”
Ety was suspended that September for five days and resigned from the part-time position before coming back to work. The Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office took a report on the incident, but criminal charges were not pursued. Ety is the daughter-in-law of former township fiscal officer Pauline Ety.
