State audit finds problems at Creston Water Works

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A report from the state auditor says the manager of the Creston Water Works took nearly $90,000 in improper payments.

The report was released Friday. It says that Steve Green took additional pay, retirement contributions, unauthorized vacation payouts and petty cash between 2005 and 2012. He also had a generator and other equipment at his home that was purchased with Water Works money.

The audit also found some payments without enough documentation to determine propriety.

Green has been on administrative leave since November. A listed number for Green was disconnected. An attorney for the Water Works Board did not immediately return a call for comment.

Messages left with the Union County sheriff’s office and Union County attorney were not immediately returned.
