Mount Morris senior center faces probation from the county

The Krapohl Senior Center in Mount Morris is facing probation after what the Genesee County Office of Senior Services calls multiple violations.

More than 20 thousand dollars in inappropriate requests for reimbursement, the improper use of the â??My Senior Center Program and not following contractual requirements on a monthly basis.

The Office of Senior services is asking the board of commissioners to shut off millage payments to the senior center while on probation from June to August and suspend the center's staff from using the "my senior center" program.

During the probation period the Office of Senior Services says they will have an ongoing presence in the senior center assisting and teaching the staff the proper uses of funds and programs.

Krapohl Senior Center Director Gayle Reed was unavailable for comment with NBC 25; however, the Flint Journal reports she has had differences of opinion with county officials over these issues.
