UTICA, N.Y. -- An audit of the Utica City School District found almost $418,000 in payroll payments were not paid in accordance with contracts.
The state comptroller's office found payroll totaled $4.7 million to 151 employees.
The audit states the school board did not authorize salaries paid to 6 individuals totaling more than $347,000. And paid close to $12,000 to an employee who worked offsite without certainty the work was performed.
Utica's superintendent says corrections were made where necessary, and said the employment of those individuals was authorized when hired, but board minutes didn't acknowledge the contract agreements.
The audit was of the 2016-2017 school year.
