CLEVELAND (AP) -- An internal audit has questioned record keeping and security in the county clerk's office in Cleveland.
The audit was commissioned by an appointed Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County clerk of courts who succeeded a 37-year elected official.
According to The Plain Dealer (http://bit.ly/1a3Aq0Q ), the audit turned up internal control weaknesses. They include failing to keep safes under video surveillance and failing to charge required fees.
County Executive Ed FitzGerald says the audit shows why the clerk's office needed new leadership. The new clerk says she's in the process of hiring directors to help make changes.
