Where's all the money going?

With approximately 450 camps on Brantingham Lake, each paying on the average of approximately 6K/year in taxes, well that's about 2.7 Million dollars per year. The numbers may be argued, so lets say safely 2 Million/ year, instead.
Please read the excerpt from an article taken from the Watertown paper this morning, and then read the full article ... it only gets better:
'The clerk in the Town of Greig used funds intended for an environmental improvement project to conceal a shortage in a tax collection bank account, according to an audit released today by State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli. The case has been referred to State Police officials for investigation.
Auditors found that the clerk diverted a $17,365 state grant check for the BLACK RIVER WATERSHED into a Town of Greig tax collection account to cover a $16,000 shortage. When questioned about the discrepancy by auditors, the town clerk acknowledged the shortage and later reimbursed the town from her personal account for the full amount...'
Interesting the name of the Clerk was never mentioned. Why is that?
I am glad this was caught, who knows maybe 10 or 20 years too late, but better late than never. Wonder when the last true audit like this was?

Actually, Karin's name was mentioned.
But what a mess! I'm really surprised the board wasn't overseeing the accounts.

Looks like a common occurrence in Lewis County.
Oversight should be sooooo implemented by a outside agency or whatever, every day. There's not enough money in this community to be wasted in this manor.
So, I hear Karin Fayle wasn't charged with embezzlement. Is that right?
