State Auditor Tom Schweich discusses Jasper County Circuit Court Audit


Missouri State Auditor Tom Schweich recently conducted an audit of the Jasper County Circuit Court.

The court was given just a "fair" rating due to weaknesses in accounting procedures.

Former Circuit Clerk Linda Williams retired last July.

Schweich says there were some timing issues when it comes to returning bonds in a timely manner, but he says everything has now been resolved.

"There are several areas that need improvement, but most of those problems are old problems," Schweich said.  "We're optimistic that the accounting problems we found will be corrected and everything will be fine going forward."

The State Auditor's race is the only statewide race up for election in 2014 and a Democratic candidate has not yet been named.
