When the Worth County Tax Commissioner arrived at work Monday morning she found a very unexpected notice on her desk.
The notice was from the Worth County Sheriff's Office saying she was relieved of her duties as Ex-Officio August 1st. The responsibilities will be taken over by Chief Bobby Sapp.
As Ex-Officio, Tabatha DuPriest, was responsible for collecting all delinquent taxes. DuPriest said on one hand she's relieved because this will lessen her work load but on the other hand she's disappointed.
