Southeast White County Public Water Authority

KATV examination of credit card statements (Part II)

Channel 7 requested and was provided with an additional 13 months of credit card statements (with payment due dates 1/26/2014 through 1/26/2015).

The credit card for the water association was issued to Manager Diana Woodle.

On April 7 th at a special board meeting Mrs. Woodle submitted her letter of resignation.

A motion was then made to remove Mrs. Woodle from all SEWCO bank accounts, CD’s and lock boxes.

On April 21 st Mrs. Woodle wrote a cashier’s check to the association in the amount of $25,944.06 as repayment for unauthorized expenses.

Another SEWCO employee, Brandon Johnson, was fired and has signed a promissory note pledging to repay $23,168.00 in unauthorized charges.

It is unclear how Woodle, Johnson and the board arrived at the repayment totals or the scope of the review used to determine the totals (i.e. one year’s worth of records, two years, etc).

After reviewing the additional 13 credit card statements provided to KATV we have again categorized 20 areas of spending and added a list of other miscellaneous charges. A great deal of credit card charges were made at Walmart, restaurants, gas stations and other retailers in Searcy. We have not totaled any of those expenses. These categories total what were in most cases recurring charges.

Some of these are likely legitimate business expenses. Others are obviously not. We do not know because to date no one associated with the charges has been willing to offer any clarification.
