HUNTSVILLE — Charges against Scott County Finance Director Brian Strunk of verbal abuse of one county administrator and banishment from his office by another will be investigated, according to Finance Committee Chairman Mike Slaven.

Near the conclusion of Monday’s County Commission meeting, Scott County Mayor Jeff Tibbals noted that no mention of the complaints was made in the minutes of the April 14 Finance Committee meeting, and expressed the opinion that the seriousness of the charges made should be included in the minutes of the meeting.
