County officials indicated Wednesday that an audit committee will be put into place for county government.
It will likely be made up of three members of the County Commission, it was stated.
County Auditor Bill McGriff said the county in the past had not seen the need for such a panel. He said the county has a AAA bond rating and an excellent finance staff.
However, he said the Haslam administration favors establishment of such audit committees and it is a key ingredient of obtaining certain grants.
