Anne Arundel Community College questions legality of county audit, seeks opinion of Maryland attorney general

The Capital
The shoving match between the County Council and Anne Arundel Community College is now in the Maryland Attorney General's Office.

Although AACC officials say they will open their books for a County Council-requested audit, they are questioning the legality of the council's move.

"Our understanding of Maryland law tells us it is inappropriate for the County Council to request this kind of audit," the chairwoman of the college's board of trustees, Victoria Fretwell, said on Wednesday. "We're requesting clarification from the attorney general."

"Any time the council has asked us for information, the board of trustees has always been forthcoming," Fretwell said. "… (But) it's still the responsibility of the board of trustees to manage the community college."

The college's decision to seek a legal opinion came as the council intensified its effort to review the college's finances.

The conflict started when the County Council cut the AACC budget by $5 million this year. That prompted the college to double fees for senior citizens taking courses, causing a public outcry.
