Commissioners discuss public works manager accused of embezzling over a million dollars

Posted: Updated:

Franklin County Commissioners have made no official decision regarding Public Works Manager Dennis Huston.

Huston is accused of embezzling over a million dollars from the county over the last ten years.

Commissioners called a special meeting Monday to discuss the complaints, but say they need more time before taking action.

The next commissioners meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. Wednesday.

These meetings are separate from any criminal proceedings Huston may face.

Prosecutors have until Tuesday afternoon to charge him, charges could include first degree theft, money laundering and cocaine possession.
