Just three months after Cambria County received a clean audit report the County Controller is painting a grim outlook for the rest of the year.  Ed Cernic says county finds are quickly diminishing as unpaid bills are piling up and he is blaming most of the problem on improper budgeting by current and former Commissioners.  Cernic is worried about the financial future of Cambria County.  There is just 5 million dollars left in this years General Fund and 16 million dollars in unpaid bills.  Cernic says it was a combination of overspending, population decline and improper budgeting over several years that got the county in a bind.  He says he understands the current Commissioners are not entirely at fault but says they are not doing enough to fix it.
