Recorder/Treasurer Records Found to be Undone

The Hampton City Council discussed the financial errors caused by the previous recorder/ treasurer for the city of Hampton. The recorder/treasurer wrote all the checks for payroll out of one account. Checks were also not being deposited in the bank accounts. This has been going since 2019.

Mayor Rick Shirron requested the help of former city recorder/ treasurer Judy Southall to assist with the findings.

“We are going to work our way out of this,” said Shirron, “We will not go back to the situation we used to have in Hampton, Arkansas years ago, not as long as I have any say about it.”
