Tax Commissioner Requests Questions in Writing

Tax Commissioner Jeff Chapman attended yesterday’s county work session as he said, to observe the discussion about renovations in his office, which, according to the county commission, were undertaken without proper authorization. When questions about the renovations arose from Commissioners Mike Browning and Allen Booker, Chapman stated that due to the legal situation regarding the renovations he would only answer in writing, questions that were submitted to him in writing. Browning expressed frustration at Chapman’s response and the county had a process for renovation projects that should have been followed.
