  • Delayed audit of Youngstown development company
    The state auditor is attempting to audit a Youngstown development corporation -- and says he can't get financial adequate financial records. Auditor Dave Yost says he's repeatedly attempted to obtain records from the Youngstown Central Area Community Improvement Corp., or CIC. The records cover 2009 through 2011. The corporation finances restoration efforts of vacant buildings in downtown Youngstown, and says the issue is just a matter of timing and not inadequate bookkeeping. Audits are supposed to be done annually but the CIC's is 2 years overdue.
    The Youngstown Vindicator reports that the CIC has been largely dormant for the past three years because many of its properties have already been developed.
