Cherokee County commissioners want to know what happened to county money


A Cherokee County commissioner says an outside, independent auditor will probably soon release her recommendations of how the county can improve its financial system.

Commissioner Pat Collins says he doesn't know many details or specifics of either what led to this independent audit, or which direction the audit may be headed.  

A previous audit report showed more than 42-thousand dollars is unaccounted for.  But Collins says he doesn't know if the money was stolen or misplaced because of current internal operations by the county.

We asked Collins to name a few ways internal operations could be improved.

"We handle a large amount of checks and don't necessarily know where each one is.  This, perhaps, will help us get a little closer handle on that," says Collins.

Collins says he doesn't yet know a more specific time frame of when this newest audit report will be released.
