Hospital district officials released a long-awaited forensic audit to the Adair County Community Voice last week. The Voice recently filed an open records request for the audit but the hospital district denied the request. The Voice responded with an appeal to the Attorney General’s office. The hospital district filed a response to the appeal but notified the Voice on Monday, Aug. 20 that it was dropping the appeal and made the document available.
Attached is a copy of a portion of the forensic audit and a conclusion written by Lattimore Black Morgan and Cain, the auditing firm hired to conduct the audit. ( A number of attachments, including receipts, computer printouts and contracts evaluated by the auditing firm are not included here.)
