Email News Alerts

Accounting transparency is coming to Hubbard County, compliments of its newest commissioner.

Businesswoman Kathy Grell, since taking office in January, has questioned public donations to various county programs, such as K-9, Explorers and Sentence to Serve.


"The donations and expenditures are not reflected in the budget," Auditor Pam Heeren agreed.

"They're kept in a little slush fund," Grell suggested.

"Let's not call it that," Heeren responded.
