Clinch County Commission investigates questionable account

June 21, 2007

Homerville - Clinch County commissioners question an account maintained by the clerk of courts office.

They asked a Valdosta accountant to examine the transactions from the Clinch Misdemeanor Probation account.

The accountant reports that five employees collected nearly $70,000 beginning in 2002 that went into this account.

The account, however, was not among those listed in the records at the Clerk of Courts office.

Since the clerk and employees of that office are paid salaries, they are prohibited from receiving fees in payment for services.

So far, no decision has been made on whether or not any laws were violated.

The commissioners plan to continue the investigation.
