NEWPORT-A state audit of Cocke County's government for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2012, resulted in only eight minimal findings by auditors.

The audit report states, "Our audit resulted in eight findings and recommendations, which we have reviewed with Cocke County management.

"I was very pleased with the audit," said Cocke County Mayor Vaughn Moore. "Everything was accounted for."

The first finding listed by auditors was that some Park and Recreation Department funds were not deposited within three days of collection.

"They had taken in just a few dollars and hadn't turned them in on time," said Moore. "Even if you only take in a nickel, it should be turned in within three days. We have addressed that."
