Comptroller DiNapoli Releases Municipal Audits

July 28, 2015

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced his office completed audits of the Village of Fultonville, Town of Livonia and the Seymour Public Library District.

“In today’s fiscal climate, budget transparency and accountability for our local communities is a top priority,” said DiNapoli. “By auditing municipal finances and operations, my office continues to provide taxpayers the assurance that their money is being spent appropriately and effectively.”

Village of Fultonville – Claims Auditing (Montgomery County)

Except for minor discrepancies, auditors found that the village board properly conducted a complete and thorough audit of the claims and that claims were adequately supported and for legitimate purposes.

Town of Livonia – Justice Court (Livingston County)

The town justices did not require the clerk to perform monthly bank reconciliations or accountabilities for their review to ensure all collections were accurately accounted for and any discrepancies were promptly identified and corrected. Auditors also found that the justices did not routinely submit monthly reports to the state Justice Court Fund.

Seymour Public Library District – Over-The-Counter Cash Receipts (Cayuga County)

Library officials did not always ensure that adequate documentation was maintained to verify that all cash collections were recorded and deposits were made timely and intact.
