Mayor Ragsdale's audit response expected today

Knox County (WVLT) - Today's the deadline for Knox County Mayor Mike Ragsdale and his aides to respond to undocumented purchasing card charges revealed in a recent audit.

Knox County commissioners formally censured Mayor Mike Ragsdale Monday after receiving the county's audit of questionable purchasing card spending.

The commission is demanding repayment of nearly $40,000 in unaccounted charges by the mayor and his aides.

Ragsdale and others have had four days to submit documentation for the P-Card charges.

If they don't do so today, the county could file a lawsuit to reclaim the money.
