The state auditor Wednesday announced a statewide sweep of all special districts to increase accountability of how the funds are used in each district. Auditor Adam Edelen says the residents of the state will have a clearer picture of how many special districts there are statewide – levying between $500 million and $1.5 billion in taxes and fees annually – and how they spend their money. The findings will be made into an electronic database by the end of the year.
