SOUTH WHITLEY — An error in the amount of $160,000 has caused South Whitley Town Council President Tony Starkey to scratch his head.
Clerk Treasurer Bob Gould informed the council at Tuesday’s meeting of the error. “There are erroneous numbers in the computer system that showed we had $160,000. We didn’t have that money. I don’t know where that dollar amount came from.”
Gould said when he discovered the error, funding categories needed to be redistributed and the $160,000 had to be deducted from various spending accounts.
