Admin. working to fix past audit issues
Tunica County Administrator Michael Thompson is taking information from past audit reports, the county’s financial accounting system, financial statements, and other records to create what he said will be a better government for the county.
“I’m about two things: transparency and accountability. It’s county government. It’s public,” Thompson said.
Material weaknesses have plagued Tunica County financial statements for at least the past several years, according to its 2009-2012 audit reports completed by Hernando-based accountancy firm Williams, Pitts, and Beard, PLLC. Reports are publicly available online at the Office of State Auditor Stacey Pickering.
