The San Joaquin County Grand Jury has accused the Woodbridge Sanitary District of a litany of improprieties in its operations.

The small district, which provides sewer service to Woodbridge, has allegedly committed payroll fraud, fiscal mismanagement, falsified state water records, harassed employees, used neptotism and favoritism, failed to adequately train employees and lacked board polices and procedures, according to a grand jury report issued this morning.

The sanitary district board has already corrected some of the issues that were cited, according to the grand jury. They include approving the purchase of an employee time clock and developing job descriptions, credit card policies and a personnel manual.

The sanitary board of directors is required to respond to the allegations in writing to the presiding Superior Court judge by Sept. 20.
