Probe into Spending Continues

Probe into Spending Continues

 Attorneys hired by Eau Claire County spent last night’s county board meeting trying to explain the damning investigation into the county’s Department of Human Services.

The lawyers downplayed the three-million dollars in extra spending the investigation uncovered, and tried to explain away some of the extravagant expenditures in the report.  But by and large, those explanations didn’t satisfy the crowd that turned out to get answers about the DHS investigation. The attorneys suggest a new learning session to bring the county board up to speed on the county’s budget instead.
