HAMILTON, Mont. (AP) - An outside auditor says the Ravalli County Treasurer’s Office has caught up on nearly $1 million in tax payments and deposits, but more remains to be done.

The Ravalli Republic reports (https://tinyurl.com/kzmzfs3 ) the auditor told the county attorney on Friday that cash accounts have been reconciled through September 2013, and some unreconciled differences are being investigated.

The county attorney ordered the auditor’s review amid a dispute between the county commissioners and interim treasurer Valerie Stamey.

Stamey was put on paid leave in January after her office fell months behind in depositing money and providing disbursements and financial reports. The county commissioners want to fine her $29,000 over the reports.

Stamey has accused the county of not maintaining its files properly and allowing tax liens to be sold illegally.
