McHenry County Blog has been denied access to an internal audit conducted by County Auditor Pam Palmer.
When a similar request was sent to the County Department of Public Health, the reply indicated that all records were with the State’s Attorney’s Office.
Now, the County Board will vote upon whether to make the audit public.
Here is part of the memo that board members will see:
Finance and Audit Committee was presented preliminary findings by the County Auditor on an internal audit done on the McHenry County Dental Care Clinic Fund, a special revenue fund for the Department of Public Health.
The findings showed irregularities between the Dental Health Care Clinic and a veteran’s grant received by the Veterans Assistance Commission providing dental services to indigent veterans.
Some members of the Finance and Audit Committee have strong feelings that this information should be released and the County Auditor should turn over her working papers.
