Judge grants Clay County time to appeal


LIBERTY – After Circuit Judge James Van Amburg ruled the Clay County Commission must turn over records commissioners seek to keep secret from Missouri Auditor Nicole Galloway, the commission issued a statement that the ruling did not provide adequate time for appeal.

The commission asked the court for more time to consider an appeal.

On Friday, the court agreed to allow more appeal time.

The commission has maintained Galloway should not have access to records involving county employees.
