May 31, 2015 Hamblen/Morristown Solid Waste Board Seeks Proposals for Auditing Services

The joint Hamblen County/Morristown Solid Waste Board (SWB) is advertising for proposals for auditing services.

As I mentioned in a prior post, Doe Jarvis made the motion to look at new auditors for the SWB back on May 16, 2015. The vote was unanimous. [SWB Chairman Tony Cox was absent when the vote was taken.]

On Friday, May 29, the SWB put an ad in the paper for auditing services. Interested firms can pick up packets at the SWB office to use in submitting proposals.

Proposals have to be turned in to the SWB office by 10 AM on Monday, June 15, 2015.

At a previous SWB executive committee meeting, SWB Chairman Tony Cox had mentioned that the Board might need to review certain professional positions and decide whether to keep the current auditors (Craine-Thompson-Jones), the current engineer (Matt Hatfield), and current attorney (Chris Capps).

The search for new auditors comes on the heels of a report by the Tennessee Comptroller's Office that over $220,000 was taken by SWB Director Ronnie Brady between July 2010 and January 2014.

Brady resigned in early 2014 and was indicted for theft over $60,000 by a local grand jury on March 2, 2015.
