Palm Beach County audit finds issues with tickets, parking collections at high school sporting events 

By Post Staff

The Palm Beach County school officials and volunteers responsible for millions of dollars in annual ticket sales and parking fees at high school sporting events are doing a poor job keeping track of it all, according to an investigative report from the district’s Inspector General.


While there are no allegations of missing money, the report does, however, recommend more training with regard to collection procedures. On Aug. 10, the district’s audit committee is expected to review the findings of Inspector General Lung Chiu’s draft audit.

“Most importantly, control procedures were not consistently followed at all the sample schools we visited,” Chiu wrote in the draft report. “Many of the noncompliance issues identified can be attributed to staff not following or not aware of existing procedures and guidelines.”
