The Internal Revenue Service has filed a lien against a Georgia county agency for more than $1 million.

The Brunswick News reported Monday that the lien against Camden County’s Public Service Authority is for $1.5 million and an estimated $500,000 of sales tax money spent on unapproved projects.

The authority’s director, William Brunson, was fired this year and charged with government property theft after a probe revealed some financial problems. Brunson built a park at the wrong location about a decade ago, costing the Authority $309,000. The investigation focuses on Brunson, but some have asked local officials for a grand jury investigation.

The authority board’s members — two county commissioners and the mayors of Kingsland, St. Marys, Woodbine— have voted to pay around $700,000 to pay for some of the discovered shortfall.

  1. Truth be told, The authority board’s members — two county commissioners and the mayors of Kingsland, St. Marys, Woodbine— have voted to make the local city and county taxpayers to foot the bill and pay around $700,000 to pay for some of the discovered shortfall. Then one can expect some cuts and shortfalls to happen when the money is not there to help the elderly, children and members of the local community.
