Auditor in initial phase
At last week’s county Board meeting, independent auditor Michael Thompson delivered a brief report on his work since being hired by Tunica County in late October.
Thompson said the audit was in the “scoping” phase. He’d been in contact with county administrator Clifton Johnson and comptroller Lawanda Knighten about needed documents such as organizational charts, budgets, and financial information. He’d also been meeting with various department heads.
Thompson said he anticipated he would have a final work plan ready toward the end of January, provided he was able to get department head meetings scheduled.
District 4 Supervisor Henry Nickson asked if Thompson would be going department to department, reviewing their internal budgets.
