Jailer says CCDC on the right track after audit


Sept. 4, 2013 —

Boggs did say his wife, Laura, started selling e-cigarettes after she saw how well they were selling at the jail.

“We are entrepreneurs,” Boggs said. “I think the commissary could make more money. The company we use does a good job with it but on a small regional scale it could be done better.”

Boggs said the majority of the other issues were fixed before the auditors were even out the door.

“This is a new state auditor,” Boggs said. “And this is the first time that this auditor has been in the jail. A lot of the issues, like petty cash, have never been brought to our attention.”

Boggs said he hopes that fleet cards will soon be approved by the Fiscal Court so long distance transports can resume. He believes the other issues are no longer occurring.

“The nature of an audit is to find issues, not to applaud the good,” Boggs said. “When a new law comes into effect at the state level, sometimes it takes a while to trickle down. Now we know what we needed to be doing and we are making that happen.”
