Lawmakers discuss Jefferson County audit

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - State Representatives Paul Demarco and Greg Canfield want to see more accountability from Jefferson County.

In an interview on Good Day Alabama, Demarco and Canfield say they would like to see what exactly was going on with Jefferson Count's finances during summer of 2008, when things started to get bad for Jefferson County.

Both lawmakers say an audit of those months would be helpful and add that if the information should already be available, but is not. They also say that an ongoing gathering of Jefferson County's finances would help citizens to understand where tax money is being spent and could prevent further money issues.
