Audit Reveals $9200 Missing
In City Water-Sewage Funds
State Attorney officials and bonding company represen-
tatives were in PaIt St. Joe"Monday and Tuesday of this
week investigating irregularities in the records of the. City
of Port St. Joe. -The investigation stemmed out of a report
by the auidting firm of Smith, Ryan and Carlisle of Jackson-
ville that the City records did not reflect the true condition
of .the City of Port St. Joe.
The auditing firm notified the
"City Commission last Thursday of
"inadequacies and errors" in the
City records soon after they had
begun a 'three-year audit on Wed-
nesday of last week. The errors
discovered in the records were in
the Water and .Sewer Fund account,
according to the auditors.
Ralph Smith amd Bob Carlisle,
of the Jacksonville firm appeared
before the Commission in a called
meeting last Thursday afternoon
and advised 'the Commission that
"the books -of the City of Port St.
Joe were very poorly kept, and that
the water -and sewer system of the
'City reflected a shortage of ap-
According to Mayor Hanson, the
shortage had been ocurring over
about a 'two year period.
The Commission discussed the
masterr at their special meeting
Thursday and decided unanimously
to suspend City Auditor and Clerk
R. W. Henderson effective as of.
March 22, 1962, for incompetency.
The matter was discussed by the
Commission and it was pointed out
that the City Auditor and Clerlk
was responsible 'for the employees
of the City, working in the 'City
Hall, and the responsibility of
maintaining correct books was that
of the City Auditor and Clerk, R.
W. Henderson, and that the audi-
tors should further investigate the
matter of the shortage.
The City Board immediately is-
sued forth a call for their boend-
ing agent to come to Port St. Joe.
The audit was completed Tues-
day of this week, and found that
some $9,200.00 could not be ac-
counted for in the City's Water and
' Bonding company officials which
bonds all City employees arrived in
Port St. Joe Monday to conduct
their investigation of the matter
and State's Attorney people were
in Port St. Joe Tuesday making
Results of neither investigation
was'available at press time.
The Board appointed Mrs. Ruth
Hammond to be .temporary City
Auditor and Clerk at their meeting
of last Thursday.

utes of the special meeting of
March 22, 1962 reflect the fact that
the meeting was held in the office
of the Mayor Frank Hannon, 221
Reid Avenue, Port St. Joe, Florida,
which is highly unlikely that this
place of business is now designated
the Port St. Joe City Hall.
Also it is not understood that if
the City Auditor and Clerk was
going to be "called on the carpet"
and charged with incompetency
and shortage in certain accounts,
why was he mot given notification
of this 'fact and asked to be pres-
ent, in selfdefense if nothing else.
I do not recall' of being advised of
the fact that there was going to
be a special meeting for this pur-
pose. Also the City Charter, under
Section 18, thereof provides that
upon the call of any special meet-
ing that each .member of the Com-
mission be given written notice at

Recently during the current year
1962, the City apparently has gone
a "little" overboard in current
spending. Some of these figures on
expenditures as follows is .estimat-
ed, but very close 'to being true,
General repair to 100,000 gallon
water tank $5,900.00 approximately.
Purchase of lighting .equipment
for bal parks $1,400.00 approx.
Purchase of fence for 2 ball parks
Purchase of tractor and side-
cutting attachment and rotary cut-
ter, $3,500.00 approximately.
Purchase of water pipe for Mar-
vin Avenue, $1,000.00 approx.
Total, $14,000.00, approximately.
The $5,900.00 for the general re-
pairs to the water 'tank has been
paid to the contractor in full-from
the water and sewer fund. This
leaves 'approximately $8,100.00 to
be paid out of the 'City General
Fund 'and at present tehre is avail-
able to the General Fund a balance
,of approximately $17,000.00 with
principally all large amounts of
revenue 'already collected and spent
under the present budget appropria-
Ption, leavingg approximately liin'e
,months yet to operate under the
prese- 'budget. If the City should
elect to pay he approximately $8,-
100.00 for its recent "small" pur-
chases this would leave approxi-
mately $8,9.00.00 remaining balance
available to 'the General Fund and
also it should be mentioned ap-
proxima ely 3,500 in invoices ap-
.proved at the .meeting of March 20,
1962, this then would dwindle the
available General Fund balance to
an approximate $5,400.00, not to
mention the fact that two payrolls,
one just passed for the weekly em-
ployees in the approximate amount
of $800.00 and 'the semi-monthly
payroll due April 1 in the approxi-
mate amount of $2,400.00, now these
three payrolls amount to an ap-
proximate $4,000.00 and this would
then dwindle the remaining avail-
able General Fund 'balance to $1,-
400.00. Now there is approximately
$8,750.00 -due leinholders from the
City General Fund as of December
31, 1961 and also an amount of ap-
proximately $2,000.00 will be due
the auditing firm of Smith, Ryan
and Carlisle for preparing the 3-
year audit. Taking 'these two fig-
ures into consideration this would
cause a credit balance to exist in
the General Fund 'of approximately
$9,350.00, and I am sure everyone
knows what a credit balance means.
It means that you will be in' the
"red" by the end of another 30
day period by $9,300.00 in, the gen-
eral fund, not *to mention the fact
that payrolls and accounts pay-
able will be also accruing daily.
Now this would b ethe case if all
these bills were 'paid as they are
now due and become due. Of
course this 'will not necessarily be
the case because the same old prac-
tice will have to be followed, that
is arrange a loan with some bank
for money on which to operate and
pay these bills or juggle funds
from other pledged funds to cover quire additional advalorem tax
the invoices, and very, very little millage to be levied to support such
revenue to be received into the
General Fund until late in Novem-
ber 1962. This in my .personal opin-
ibn does not present a healthy fi-
nancial general fun condition at
this time. Nof, if everyone has this

only be enough money left to may-
be half complete a major expansion
of this type, resulting in the pos-
sibility that the entire project
would be stalled for perhaps quite
some time. It should also be noted
that 'the interest alone at an esti-
.mated 5% per annul on a $500,-
000.00 issue would be $25,000.00 for
the first year, not to mention how-
ever much ,principal would be re-
quired to be paid and it is again
my personal -opinion that the Water

go such additional expansions -and
The City of Port St. Joe during
the recent years has expended con:
.siderable funds in he maintenance
and upkeep of a boat basin which
is well .outside the territorial lim-
its -of the City of Port S. Joe. Also
it is true that considerable funds
have been expended in the 'devel-
opment and upkeep of two ceme-
teries, which are also outside the
territorial limits of the City of
Port St. Joe. Now, the difference
is that cemeteries are a place in
which the dead are buried and the
boat basin, in this case is chiefly
used as a place to go for pleasure
and recreation and it is also my
opinion that a corpse is no't going
to the boat basin for pleasure and
recreation. Is it entirely legal to
spend the local taxpayers munici-
pal dollars on the upkeep of any
recreation and pleasure area out-
si'de the territorial limits of any
City? The City Charter names a
number of things similar, but does
not specifically use the word
"boat basin". Now I am not against
using the boat basin. If I had a
boat I would use it myself. This
statement is not 'to be construed
to cast any reflection or throw any
derogatory remarks on any person
or persons using the boat basin.
There is only the question as to the
absolute legality o4 usch a venture.
During the month of September
each year a budget is prepared for
the coming year, said budget usu-
ally adopted 'at a Cilty Commission
meeting in 'October or November
of each year. It is the general opin-
ion that a budget is to be used as
a guide for operations. The provi-
sions as outlined In the budget rel-
ative to expenditures have not been
followed by the City Commission
during the years 1956, 1957, 1958,
1959, 1960, and 1961 and certainly
not up to 'date thighg year 1962. The
same condition of 'spending in ex-
cess of means seems to be on the
increase. Also another unwise sit-
uation occurring in .the City budget
is the" fact that no provisions are
-made each year for advancements
to the Water and Sewer Fund from
the General Fund. This would re-
courtesy to present me 'with a copy
of the -minates of the "kangaroo
court" meeting which they had sce-
retly held that afternoon, but there
was .only one thing wrong, they
didn't have the old kangaroo down
there. Also when I was advised that
I had been suspended the cash *on
