SOUTHBURY, Conn. (AP) — An auditor will try to determine what happened to $250,000 the Southbury Library Board of Directors says the town received after construction at the library finished eight years ago.
The Republican-American reports (http://bit.ly/1zvDb5V ) that First Selectman Ed Edelson said officials can find no record of the money. The library board said the money was remaining construction funds that returned to the town after the library opened in 2006.
Edelson said he'd like to think "there's a logical explanation" for what happened to the money.
Questions surfaced last month when the boards of selectmen and finance asked the library board to use money from its gift fund to pay $50,000 to $60,000 on the library's heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. The library refused, saying the gift fund is not for building-related costs.
