Fairfax official seeks audit of troubled agency

FAIRFAX, Va. - A Fairfax County supervisor is asking the board's auditor to examine the financially troubled Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board.

The Washington Post ( reports that Supervisor Patrick S. Herrity said in a letter to the auditor of the board that officials should examine whether the agency's decision a few years ago to handle private insurance reimbursements directly for its clients resulted in money wasted.

Herrity's letter says difficulties in the county obtaining reimbursement in the Infant and Toddler Connection program could account for $400,000 to $900,000 of the agency's $8 million budget gap.

The executive director of the agency, George E. Braunstein, says he welcomes the audit.

The agency is shrinking staff, making cuts to programs and looking for other ways to cut costs due to the deficit.
