Description

When Lancaster city officials revealed that the city's independent auditors had discovered that Lancaster had ended fiscal 1994 with a deficit of $1.7 million, Janice Stork, the city's mayor, blamed the deficit on Robert Bolton, the city's director of finances. Bloton was immediately dismissed. The Sunday news investigated the city's finances and discovered that the city had been overspending for five years, but had managed to balance city books by drawing down reserve funds.
