The Indiana State Board of Accounts filed its findings of an audit of the Ohio County Convention Tourism and Visitors Commission on March 19, ending a nine-month investigation.
The 25-page document revealed that there was no problem with the fiscal year 2010 but found that there were $4,344.70 charges on the commission credit card during 2011 of which there was no documentation for $3,127.56 of those charges.
In conclusion, the report found that former tourism executive director Eric Scudder should pay back $1,634.32.
The audit revealed that Scudder conducted a raffle to raise funds to be donated to not-for-profit educational organizations. Raffle tickets were sold during the period June 3, 2011, to July 17, 2011.
The raffle was suspended due to a conflict in obtaining a permit for the raffle from the Indiana Gaming Commission and all monies collected were refunded.
