Audit: $23K Missing from Cherokee County

cherokee county








COLUMBUS, Kan. (AP) — Cherokee County officials say an audit of the county treasurer's office shows that more than $23,000 is missing from county bank accounts. County Commissioner Richard Hilderbrand said Friday that the special audit of funds from 2011 shows a difference of more than $18,000 between what the bank account shows and what the treasurer's office shows. In 2012, the difference climbs to more than $23,000. Juanita Hodgson, who has been treasurer for 12 years, says while she doesn't know the exact cause of the discrepancy, she believes the problem could be human error. The Joplin Globe reports that Hilderbrand says an auditor is expected to give the board a formal letter the first week of August that will show the findings in detail.
