Report: Supervisors did not adequately track spending

More than $550,000 in public funds awarded to various community groups by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors was not properly documented.

The money, mostly awarded under the county’s Neighborhood Reinvestment Program, was not necessarily misspent, just untracked.

Much of the spending does not get properly documented without prompting from the elected officials in charge of doling out the funds. Supervisors Bill Horn and Ron Roberts were the worst offenders, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

Nineteen delinquent grants recommended by Horn failed to account for about $344,000 in public funds, while 17 groups that Roberts recommended did not properly document nearly $146,000 in grants, according to the newspaper.
