Boffetti said the investigation did not disrupt cases heard in court yesterday.

“Everyone here is buckling down and doing their work,” he said.

Coyle said county commissioners will oversee the office’s financial operations, while Boffetti handles the rest.

Coyle, Pratt and fellow Commissioner Thomas Tombarello said they were surprised when they learned of the allegations.

Tombarello, who said he knows both Reams and Reid personally, said he was disappointed to hear they were being investigated.

“These allegations are disheartening to me,” he said. “I hope they are not true.”
