BUTLER COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

The former Executive Director of the Oxford Visitors and Convention Bureau spent more than $9,500 on alcohol, manicures, clothing, groceries and more, according to a release sent Tuesday by Auditor of State Dave Yost.

Former Executive Director Diana Durr was approached by board members in May of 2012 regarding personal spending.

From January 1, 2008 through May 25, 2012, auditors found 90 purchases totaling $4,261 made by Durr that were not made for proper public purposes. Examples include haircuts and styling, manicures, pet food and pet supplies, veterinary bills, personal medical bills, alcohol, and women's clothing.

According to the release, she also admitted to an additional $3,070 auditors found in personal credit card charges that lacked documentation.

A finding for recovery in the amount of $7,331 was issued against Durr. For these improper charges, a balance of $2,130 remains unpaid to date.

Durr also used other bureau funds, such as petty cash, to make $2,426 in personal and unsupported purchases, such as parking tickets, CDs and magazines. 

She submitted a letter of resignation to the board on May 25, 2012 stating she would reimburse the outstanding charges and interest on the credit card.

The Oxford Visitors and Convention Bureau is funded by a percentage of Oxford's lodging taxes.

The audit has been forwarded to the Butler County Prosecutor.
