ANSON, Maine (AP) - Town officials in Anson are trying to figure out what happened to $77,000 in missing town money.
Selectmen say they are in the early stages of looking into the missing funds, and at the moment there is no evidence of wrongdoing and no criminal investigation.
The Kennebec Journal (https://bit.ly/1NzFDCH ) reports that the missing money was uncovered in the town’s annual audit. In a report released last week, auditors pointed out a discrepancy between the number of motor vehicle registrations processed at town offices and the amount of excise tax and fees collected.
According to the audit, there was a difference of approximately $77,000 between the expected taxes and fees and the amount deposited into town accounts.
