State Comptrollers In Sullivan County
The state comptroller’s office began auditing Sullivan County’s financial records to determine why the county’s books differ from books kept at the Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Wayne Anderson requested them to help determine why County Officials claim the department is short 600-thousand dollars. The Sheriff’s Office was asking the county for 180-thousand to pay for increased fuel expenses when county records showed such a shortfall. Because the two sides disagree Anderson wanted an independent agency to look at the records saying at a news conference that anyone can make a mistake. The County Mayor went on record welcoming the assistance from the comptroller’s office as he met with a team from the state that looked through financial records at the courthouse all week. He expects the report to confirm County records are accurate as he is 99-percent sure. No matter what happens with the audit County Trustee Frances Harrell told the Executive Committee that the county is experiencing its worst cash-flow problem since 1975. (bg)
