County Treasurer under fire

Posted 7/12/05  
    Nearly two hours of Monday's (July 11) Commissioners Court meeting was given over to discussion of mistakes made by Kerr County Treasurer Barbara Nemec's office. Two citizen taxpayers brought criticism, backed up with printed materials assembled from Open Records Requests, relating to the Treasurer hiring an accused felon, making tardy insurance payments and late filings to the County Retirement Fund over a period covering 2002 to 2005. The last two items caused a loss of taxpayer money. For San Antonio Express-News story .
