$620K Missing from County Coffers

More than $620,000 was missing from county government coffers as of the most recent check by the comptroller’s office, according to a report issued by the office today.

The cash shortages, originally amounting to $1.6 million, date back to 1996-97 and were spread over three dozen counties, the report says. Included in the report are details of missing money in Monroe, Hickman and Morgan counties, which we’ve blogged on here before.
