JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) –  Missouri State Auditor Tom Schweich has some advice for Joplin officials as they handle large amounts of money in the recovery from the May tornado.

Schweich was scheduled to present several recommendations Monday at a meeting with officials in Joplin.

His office says the presentation will outline ways to avoid problems while accepting and using large amounts of recovery money.

Among the recommendations are developing a budget for disaster relief funds and getting to know program requirements, eligibility guidelines and any deadlines for filing reports.
