DENVER (AP) - An audit has found that a nonprofit that serves Denver residents with intellectual and developmental disabilities misused millions of taxpayer dollars.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/1NrTdYp ) that the audit, released Thursday, shows that Rocky Mountain Human Services overcharged the city $650,000 for administrative expenses above its 15 percent cap between January 2014 and June.

It also spend $48,000 on meetings in 2014, and continued to collect $1.34 million annually from the city to be used for state matching funds, although the state program has not issued Denver a match since 2007.

RMHS has had a Denver contract since 2003. Since then the nonprofit has received $121 million from taxpayers, including $11.5 million for 2015.

Interim CEO Shari Repinski says they have removed the company’s top executive and chief financial officer and reduced overall expenses by 17 percent.
