Pa Towns Fail To Document Natural Gas Money

04.28.14 |

   Municipal and county governments across Pennsylvania have failed to account for how $17 million in natural gas impact money was spent.
Nearly half the local townships and boroughs receiving impact money and a quarter of the counties did not send required reports this month to the state Public Utility Commission (PUC). The forms, which document how last year’s impact fee money was spent, were due on April 15th. Although the PUC is charged with collecting the forms, it does not have the legal authority to audit them.
