A state audit uncovers some waste in a waste management program. State Auditor Claire McCaskill says the State Department of Natural Resources is not properly monitoring what happens to the $11-Million in fees collected and sent back to 20 districts in the state for its Solid Waste Management program. McCaskill points to a $6,000 mural being painted on a district office wall in a building that’s being rented as just one example of how the program is mismanaged. She says while the money comes to the state from the private companies taking care of solid waste, it really comes from taxpayers in the fees they pay the companies to pick up the trash. DNR officials seem to agree with all of her recommendations in their written response to the audit.
