Benton County bounces checks to employees, vendors

FOLEY, Minn. (AP) — Benton County in central Minnesota bounced about 20 checks to employees and vendors this month.

FOLEY, Minn. (AP) — Benton County in central Minnesota bounced about 20 checks to employees and vendors this month.

The St. Cloud Times reports that most of the checks were from mileage reimbursements for county employees. County Administrator Monty Headley blames the problem on a money transfer he says didn't happen when it was supposed to.

He says the county treasurer frequently transfers money to different accounts to earn maximum interest.

Treasurer Joan Neyssen says in the past, the two banks the county uses have always transfered money if it's necessary to cover checks. She says the problem has been rectified and employees should not face any bank penalties.
