Jack Franks didn’t see fit to make use of his accumulated knowledge either.
Hammerand has been campaigning for a new firm to audit county finances for years.
As he pointed out Tuesday night, the current firm bought (or merged with) the former firm.
This happened more than once, going back to the early 1990’s.
That led Hammerand to conclude that McHenry County needed a new auditor.
When a resolution came before the board to approve the current auditors, who are well into the current audit, Hammerand proposed an amendment that next year the county select a new set of CPA’s.
When a vote was taken, Hammerand’s amendment passed.
