AUBURN, Kan. (AP) - The longtime clerk in a northeast Kansas town has resigned and an auditor has been hired to review the town’s finances.

Auburn city clerk Alice Riley resigned in mid-February, about two weeks after she was placed on paid leave.

Councilman Mike Robinson said Monday an auditor has been hired to study Auburn’s finances back to 2011. He says it’s too soon to say how much money might be missing.

Robinson says Riley was given chances to answer questions about the finances but refused and eventually resigned.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1eQkqEl ) that Riley was clerk in Auburn for 31 years.
