County OKs fair audit

Kootenai County Commissioners unanimously voted in favor of a forensic audit of the North Idaho State Fair's finances Monday. Clerk Jim Brannon’s recommendation for a forensic audit in August followed an internal audit performed by his office, which revealed some fairgrounds employees had taken draws against their future pay since 2005. Former Fair Manager Dane Dugan, who resigned Sept. 1, is noted as having taken 16 advance pay draws since 2012. Other financial data and oversight red flags surfaced/Ryan Collingwood, Press.
