Madison County in process of correcting problems discovered during audit
MADISON COUNTY is doing what it can to rectify problems that the state auditor’s office found in a recent audit.
The main problems were incorrect bonding amounts for county officials, passwords that need to be strengthened, and the county “writing bad checks.” The audit was for fiscal year 2012.
Interim Chancery Clerk Cynthia Parker said the bonding amounts have been changed. Tax Assessor Gerald Barber and Tax Collector Kay Pace had requested to be “over-bonded,” but are now bonded at $100,000 each.
