The town of Nashville, Brown County schools and other agencies are suing Brown County officials, charging that the county improperly deposited almost $400,000 in interest on tax payments into the county's general fund.
Under state law, interest on the tax should go to the local agencies.
The attorney representing the local agencies says it appears to be an oversight. It was discovered during an audit.
A telephone message seeking comment was left at the Nashville office of the attorney who is representing the county commissioners, council, auditor and treasurer.
