Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway and her office have begun an audit of Pike County and the Pike County Circuit Court, according to a press release dated Friday, April 28.
“I look forward to conducting an independent review of both Pike County and the circuit court and I encourage anyone with information to contact my Whistleblower Hotline,” Galloway said.
“It is critical that safeguards exist to ensure accountability at all levels of government.”
