Brewster County Commissioners Vote to Remove County Treasurer From Office

BREWSTER COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

NewsWest 9 has learned that Brewster County Commissioners have voted to remove Brewster County Treasurer Ruth Staton from office.

This follows a series of events including bills aren't being paid in a timely manner, department funds for county are not properly accounted for, county responsibility for grants are inefficiently managed, 2015 budget amendments can't be provided and documents for 2014 county audit were not provided in a timely manner.

Those events prompted the county to ask for an auditor and was recently approved.

Staton hasn't been officially removed until judicial court proceedings are held.

There's no word yet when those proceedings will take place.

NewsWest 9's Alicia Neaves was at the meeting and she'll have all the latest tonight on NewsWest 9 at 5 and 6 p.m.
