HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — Citing several accounting errors that cost the county thousands of dollars, the Reno County Commission has cut the treasurer's salary by more than 24 percent.

Treasurer Jan Hull defended her work and questioned if she was being singled out before the commission voted Tuesday to reduce her salary to $52,000 from $69,000 a year. The deputy treasurer's salary was reduced by $8,000.

The Hutchinson News reports Hull's mistakes since she took office in October 2013 have cost the county an estimated $40,000.

Hull acknowledged she had made errors, but said her predecessor made similar errors, and that most of the problems occurred during her first three months while she was still learning the job.
