CONSTABLE DOUG PARR UNDER FIRE - The work of Precinct 3 Constable Doug Parr is under scrutiny after he repeatedly refused to comply with orders of Auditor Ann McCuiston and the Wise County commissioners. His county charge accounts have been frozen since June 13 because he failed to address issues with inventory, many of which were related to his county vehicle. Over the past few months, there have also been questions about how many papers Parr is actually serving. According to information obtained through open records requests, the sheriff's office served 236 sets of papers from Precinct 3 on Parr's behalf from Jan. 1, 2014, through June 30, 2016, while serving less than 10 for all other precincts combined during that same time period. Parr said his work was limited for a period of time in 2014 due to a back injury, but he could not recall the exact dates. Despite his workload being limited, he continued to use the county gas card in fiscal year 2014, spending almost more than all other constables combined, according to county gas card bills obtained through an open records request.
