Investigation Shows $52K In Fuel Missing From Clinton County ODOT Tanks

An Ohio Inspector General's investigation has concluded that more than 14,700 gallons of fuel were not accounted for from two Ohio Department of Transportation tanks in Clinton County.

 The state watchdog's office reported that some officials in the southwest Ohio district either were not aware of policies and procedures for tracking fuel, or purposely ignored them. The report Monday states that taxpayers footed the bill for more than $52,000 in missing fuel. The IG's office recommends that the state's transportation department review the actions of the employees involved, increase training and procedures to document fuel dispensing, and conduct spot checks more often.
