Auditor's Error Costs Indiana County More Than $120K

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) _ Clerical errors by a southern Indiana county's auditor's office have cost county officials more than $120,000 this year.
The first error cost Monroe County revenue, which county officials sought to make up for by requesting an excess tax levy. But the state never considered that request because instead of entering the lost revenue amount of $120,600 in its tax levy request the county office in Bloomington instead entered ``$0.''
Auditor Steve Saulter tells The Herald-Times he takes responsibility for the situation but says there's no way for the county to get back the lost funds. Most of the money was meant for the county general fund.
The county council has asked the auditor to implement mandatory reviews of financial documents to avoid future errors.
