Okaloosa commissioner wants internal auditor

Windes agreed, but said that considering the fraud discovered in the past six months, the money would be well spent.

“I know this would be yet another position, and it might be construed as big government, but if you look at the history, I think the citizens will appreciate some more looking in on the situation,” he said. “I want more scrutiny wherever we can get it.”

Windes said he has definite ideas about a job description for an auditor and the kinds of access that person should have to county records.

Commissioners agreed last week to wait until the State Auditor General’s Office has issued its final report on the Bellinger case before addressing the auditor’s position.
