During a press event at the Missouri Capitol last month, State Auditor Nicole Galloway told reporters audit work continues in Clay County despite lags related to the county’s legal action. No timeline has been given for when results are expected.

CLAY COUNTY — County leaders are sticking to their guns when it comes to putting up roadblocks in the state audit of Clay County after an assistant county administrator refused to answer questions Thursday, Dec. 12, from auditors as required by a subpoena issued more than two weeks ago.

CLAY COUNTY — After being accused of refusing to appear to provide testimony demanded by the state auditor Monday, Nov. 25, Assistant County Administrator Nicole Brown and county staff provided media a copy of an affidavit Brown sent to the auditor’s office explaining why she was a no-show Monday.

CLAY COUNTY —On Friday, Nov. 22, State Auditor Nicole Galloway issued yet another subpoena to Clay County, demanding the county turn over documents associated with a citizen-mandated audit. This is in addition to a previous subpoena issued on Nov. 8, and is the third subpoena overall issued by the state auditor for records in relation to the county audit.
