Ohio Auditor to Look at Toledo's Books

(Toledo, OH) Ohio's auditor may get a hand in fixing Toledo's finances.  State auditor Dave Yost has agreed to perform the first public audit of Toledo's budget since the mid-1980's. 

Toledo's  mayor made that request late last month to settle a dispute within city government over eight million dollars that sat idle in a city account for several years-- which a fact-finder discovered was illegally co-mingled for years. 

That dispute led to the resignation last week of the city's finance director, a former city councilman. A private audit firm has been used for decades, but that contract instead will be given to the state auditor's office to end the confusion among Toledo's top brass.
