Comptroller Auerbach is looking to hire new staff to properly look over the county's finances and make sure every dollar and cent is accounted for... After the Dean Palen fiasco, the Jail fiasco and the most recent issues with DSS, its a no brainer.
As my father would if you're not going to do something right, don't do it all. We need the chief auditor of Ulster Counter to have the staff needed to do the job he was elected to do.
Tomorrow we will detail how the former county administrator and the charter committee, short staffed the Comptroller's office and what needs to be done to correct it.
We will also go into detail about how these positions will pay for themselves in the long run.
If you spend 300k on staff and they save taxpayers a million dollars by weeding out wasteful spending is it worth it?!?!
A full report tomorrow night!
