The Pennington County Emergency Management Department is under fire for purchasing $3,000 worth of kitchen appliances with state funds designated for preventing swine flu.
The department purchased items to create a makeshift kitchen for emergency purposes.
Officials say the department made the purchases without the knowledge of the county commissioners.
Agency director Dustin Willett says he directed his department to purchase kitchen items in December after his department found that it couldn't cook food during the October blizzard that crippled the Black Hills.
