Â«Â»c Auditors in Surcharge Litigation Against Three Supervisors GREENSBUEG, Jan. 31.--Sewickley township auditors Wednesday filed a $1,000 surcharge against William M. Shoaf, Joseph P. Sittman and William H: Fennell, charging them with filing unauthorized expenditures on March 6, 1951. If the three. men 'fail to take action, the surcharge will remain as a judgment in Westmoreland county common pleas Court. While the accused served as supervisors for the township, the Sewickley Township Tax League began a court procedure to test the legality of alleged unauthorized activities by the officials. The league charged them with purchasing road equipment and supplies without submitting bids. As a result of the action, Judge Richard D. Laird declared their offices vacated. However, the three men appealed the. decision and remained in office. Since then Sittman -was defeated for reelection arid Fennell resigned, leaving only Shoaf still in office.
