The State Auditor’s Office has issued a demand aiming to recover fees from the city of Tchula.

A news release from State Auditor Stacey Pickering states that the Mississippi OSA issued a demand for $106,140 against the City Clerk of Tchula, Annie Horton, for failure to transfer court assessment fees to the Mississippi Treasurer’s Office which is required by state law. The total amount of the demand includes interest and investigative costs.

In March 2018, OSA notified the town of Raleigh, cities of Shaw and Tchula, and Coahoma County of “failure to properly deposit court assessment fees into the Mississippi Treasury.”

Since that time, the city of Tchula is the only entity that has not properly transferred the delinquent court assessment funds.

OSA has communicated with the City of Tchula regarding the delinquent payments. The city clerk of Tchula will have 30 days to pay the demand before it is referred to the Office of the Attorney General State of Mississippi for future litigation.
