Agency credit card overcharged for unofficial expenses

Steve Neavling of The Bay City Times and the Detroit Free Press reviewed bills at the tax-funded Area Agency on Aging to show that the agency credit cards were charged for expenses running from a dozen roses to 14 out-of-state trips to locales such as Boston, San Francisco and Puerto Rico. "The regional agency that oversees services for senior citizens has used agency credit cards for $155,000 worth of meals, trips and gifts for employees and board members since 2001. " The board voted to remove a former member of the agency's Advisory Committee because, it said, he pestered staff members, hurt the agency's reputation and overcharged for attending meetings.
