Court orders fiscal audit
,for city health center

By CHERYL BAACKE
A court decision handed down yester-
day in favor of the city of Ann Arbor
will force officials of the former Model
Cities Health Center to allow a com-
plete audit of their financial records.
The decision is the result of charges
filed against the clinic's officials by
Mayor Louis Belcher and the Ann Ar-
bor City Council for not properly repor-
ting all of the center's income.
THE CENTER HAD been receiving
Community Development Block Grant
funds until 1981, when the city closed it
down because the clinic's officials
refused to consent to an audit of their
records.
Belcher said the audit was requested
because the city, which administered

the federal funds, requires audits of all
agencies receiving government money.
Emma Wheeler, former mayor
Albert Wheeler's wife, was inrcharge of
the center. During the trial, which en-
ded last month, she testified that only
half of the clinic's patient fees were
reported to the city. She said the other
half was used to create a fund to make
the agency self-sustaining.
JUDGE EDWARD Deake criticized
the way Wheeler reported the clinic's
income in his written decision.
"The city was clearly misled by the
type of reporting made to it," he wrote.
Attorneys for the city said all of the
fees should have been reported.
Wheeler's lawyer, Philip Green, said
the city does not have the right to audit

what the facility made in patient fees or
donations.
DEAKE SAID an audit is necessary
"to determine whether Model Cities
breached its trust and whether its cash
and assets are purely private funds or
are infused with some grant money."
His decision also said that if no fraud
or misrepresentation by the center is
found, "equity will be satisfied since
there has been a full disclosure of the
facts."
Belcher said he believes the center
had at least $200,000 in extra funds
when it was closed down by the city.
The audit will determine how much, if
any, of that money is federal funds.

Media services to be reviewed

(Continued from Page 1)
mittee asked was 'Can Michigan Media
take a $250,000 cut in its budget?' But I
don't even know what the question will
be this time," he said.
THE REVIEW will be divided into
two phases, according to Frye. The first
committee will gather information on
the various media services, while the
second committee will evaluate the fin-
dings of the first and make a recom=
mendation to the University's
executive officers, he said.
The fact-finding committee was
created in order to determine exactly
what media services are available at
the University, Holbrook said.
"Right now the review is specific only
in procedure, but not in scope. This is
because a catalog of (media) activities
doesn't exist now," he said.
ALTHOUGH COMMITTEE mem-
bers will not be named for about a
week, Frye said the fact-finding com-
mittee will be made up of only Univer-
sity administrators. "This way it will
be handled more efficiently," Holbrook
said.
The review committee will consist of
students and faculty members as well
as administrators, Frye added.
No specific date has been set for
completion of the review but Holbrook

said he hopes the process will be swift.
"The hopes and expectation are that
the time frame will be substantially
shorter than in the case of the coun-
seling review," he said.
The University's counseling services
have been under review for almost a
year and no final recommendation has

been made yet.
If the fact-finding committee takes
too long, it will slow down the whole
process, Holbrook said. "If it's April or
May before the first committee reports
its findings, we might as well wait until
fall to begin the review," he said. "It's
real hard to get anything done over.the
summer."
