[a7]joco & on track-live stinger the county did an audit on the company from august 20th to october 10th of this year. that's when the county found out they were paying for clients who were not eligible for the services. ontrack provides services for drug addicts and addiction. their contract with josephine county started just over a year ago on september 20th in 2017. i reached out to ontrack about the county's decision. eddie wallce their communications person told me they had no idea the contract ended until they started getting a number of calls about it today. he sent me this statement saying in part "we are very disappointed in the county's decision. it's important to note that there are no current ontrack clients in josephine county who are affected by the county's decision. as part of our continuing rebuilding process... we will redouble our rigorous examination of all of ontrack's business practices and make corresponding improvements identified through this process." today i also spoke to wally hicks the legal counsel for josephine county. he provided the termination papers to me and told me they were suspicious with ontrack and funding so that's why they decided to do an audit in the first public funds were being spent and so ontrack as per terms of it's contract provided access to its financial records to county personel. i also met someone who is a client at ontrack in grants pass. he just recently signed up for the program and he tells me he is now nervous he might not be able to do the program anymore. coming up at newswatch 12 at 6 i'll explain what josephine county will do now that they don't have the drug abuse and addiction services anymore. live in grants pass leah thompson newswatch 12. a developing story-- a homeless
