Following issues with fraudulent employee time sheets at the Municipal Golf Course, Henderson, Kentucky’s city auditor, Mac Neel, has recommended the implementation of biometric-based time and attendance systems as part of his presentation of the city’s annual financial report, according to a Courier Press article.
