An unfinished 2012 audit of Warren County says Circuit Clerk Shelly Ashley-Palmertree owes the county more than previously thought and supervisors will ask for payback this week.
The five-member board will meet in special session to demand the clerk repay fees beyond the state-set cap for fee-based public officials. Details of the county's 2012 audit are not expected to be complete until June 30. However, District 5 Supervisor Richard George says supervisors have learned that the audit when complete will note about $86,000 in cap overpayments.
Ashley-Palmertree and State Auditor Stacey Pickering each has filed complaints in Hinds County Chancery Court over $661,751.75, which the county has demanded she repay. The case is before 5th Chancery Judge Dewayne Thomas.
