An audit from the New York State comptroller’s office finds alleged misuse of funds in a Dutchess County town.

A recent audit by New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli detailed a deteriorating financial condition in Saratoga County due in part to increasing costs at a subsidized nursing home.

The audit released by the Comptroller’s office found that between January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2012, Saratoga County’s general fund balance decreased 41 percent, from $24.7 million to $10.3 million.

The cause to blame? The increased costs of running Maplewood Manor – a subsidized nursing home facility.
