County Commissioner Harold Cogdell questions why top county managers sit on a committee charged with monitoring the performance of management.
Cogdell's comments earlier this week came after the audit review committee updated the full board on its latest findings.
The panel found that managers reacted appropriately to allegations of impropriety at the Department of Social Services.
At issue is whether County Manager Harry Jones and General Manager John McGillicuddy should be members of the audit panel. DSS Director Mary Wilson reports to Jones.
"It seems odd to me that our county manager and an assistant county manager who reports to our county manager would be a part of a committee to make a determination about whether management responded appropriately," Cogdell said. "It undermines to some extent the appearance of what this committe is charged with having done."

Commissioner Dan Murrey said the committee will address the matter.
