They set a June 21 deadline for him to repay the county.In a separate letter, commissioners asked county prosecutor Eric Zahnd to investigate Willard for spending county money without proper authorization and to impose any penalty allowed under Missouri law.“We believe this is the right thing to do for the person who made this error, who failed to follow policy and procedure to make the county whole,” said Presiding Commissioner Ron Schieber.
