N.J. State Commission of Investigation

County Clerks' Trust Funds
1995

The Commission conducted a statewide review of trust funds for county clerks and registers of deeds and found that substantial sums were being used outside the statutory scope for which they were established. The investigation also revealed a number of questionable disbursements for such things as renovations, expensive decorations and furnishings in personal offices; the purchase of "specialty advertising," including pens, T-shirts and calendars; the payment of service club dues; and excessive travel expenses for conferences in resort cities.
