Audit: Ottawa Reclamation Authority Violated Accounting Practices, State Law

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A state audit says an authority that was created to control and rehabilitate hazardous land violated accounting practices and state law.

The audit says the Ottawa Reclamation Authority sold part of a chat pile after the authority was dissolved as an agency. It also says the authority sold land to a member of its board in violation of state law.

The ORA was crated in 1969 to acquire, control and rehabilitate hazardous lands and make them available for use or sale to the public.

The ORA was dissolved earlier this year and replaced by a trust that's overseeing the government buyout of property owners in the lead-contaminated Tar Creek Superfund site in northeast Oklahoma.
