Comptroller releases audit findings on Hardeman County for 2013-2014 fiscal year

The Tennessee Comptroller's Office released their audit findings this week on Hardeman County for the 2013-2014 fiscal year. The audit findings coincided with much of what attorney Charles "Chip" Cary told commissioners about during the last commission meeting. Cary warned the commissioners that continuing to not question things within the county, not being diligent in their duties as a commissioner, and approving expenditures without knowing if the county had the money, were many of the reasons the county had become in a severe financial situation.

The state's audit findings coincided with that, including findings of : expenditures exceeding appropriations, Solid Waste Disposal Fund having a deficit in unrestricted net position, along with a total of five other findings. We will break down these findings, what it means to citizens in Hardeman County, and have reactions from Hardeman County Mayor Jimmy Sain on how he will address these issues in next week's edition of The Bulletin-Times.
