State overpays $31,333 in coal severance
Several political subdivisions were overpaid more than $31,000 in coal severance shortfall funds, and the state Treasurer’s office will suspended those distributions until the issue is corrected, Center-Stanton Public School officials said Nov. 14 at the monthly school board meeting.
Subdivisions in Oliver County took the biggest hit, according to a letter from Deputy State Treasurer Jeb Oehlke. The county was overpaid $12,533 for the 2011 year. The City of Center received $9,400 and its school district got $6,913.
