A new report from the Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury shows that the state’s counties and municipalities have approximately $3.7 million in cash shortages, Knoxnews reports. Some of the shortages are due to misuse of public funds and fraud, such as an Oneida Special School District employee purchasing more than $60,000 worth of items for personal use or a former Knox County Schools mechanic who used school purchasing cards to buy nearly $187,000 in auto parts for his car repair business.
