CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

The Live Oak Library's Chatham County Board of Trustees held a meeting Tuesday to, among other things, fill vacant board seats and address questions from employees.

This follows months of controversy centered on audits that found problems within the Human Resources department and accounting problems that may have cost the system tens of thousands of dollars.

Board member Dean Horstman has been named Chatham County Board of Trustees Chairman and Charlotte Welch is the new vice-chair. 

However, there is still a lot of skepticism among employees about some board members and their reasons for staying on.

"We're very serious about what we're doing.  Do we trust you being on the board right now? I have to be honest.  We don't. Because we feel there is an underlying agenda,” said Circulation Supervisor at Bull Street Library, Tia Johnson. 

The meeting Tuesday was only for the Chatham County board, not the regional board of trustees. There are four boards, Chatham, Effingham, Liberty and Regional.

Rev. Douglas Harn is still the Chairman of the Regional Board of Trustees.
