County officials not alerted to possible financial abuse

Posted:

MIDDLETON (WKOW) -- A Middleton foster care agency accused of misusing millions in taxpayer dollars, may have done so by exploiting weaknesses in the financial oversight exercised by counties and the state. That's according to an investigation by the Wisconsin State Journal.

State officials says Community Care Resources overcharged taxpayers by more than $6 million to cover large salaries.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, county officials working with CCR said the financial information disclosed by the organization was not detailed enough to alert them to any widespread misuse of money between 2009 and 2011.

The state has revoked CCR's license, but the company continues to operate while its appeal is pending.
