Counties and spending concerns

Several member counties in March 2010 began to withhold their dues to the association pending the completion of an audit of funds.[1] Morris County stated it would withhold its $10,000 dues to the association, and Sussex and Warren County followed suit. In addition, that attention made other counties express their concern about the transparency of the association. Responses in this situation have ranged from freeholders supporting the association and being offended by the call for an audit, to others expressing skepticism over the association.[1] The executive director stepped down from her position as a result of the criticisms.[2]
