County Not Tracking Road Material Use: Audit

The Obion County Highway Department has not maintained a system to account for certain road materials, state auditors found, which puts the county at risk of losing supplies. This problem had been pointed out the year before, according to the audit by the comptroller’s office.

In the annual check of county finances, auditors also faulted both the highway and schools departments for having inaccurate ledger account balances that auditors had to correct.
