Purpose of Audit
The purpose of our audit was to determine whether the Board ensured that the Supervisor maintained adequate reports and records, receipts received by the Supervisor were properly accounted for and deposited, and disbursements were for proper Town purposes for the period January 1, 2011, to February 2, 2012.
The Town of Mamakating is located in Sullivan County, and has a population of 12,085. The Town is governed by an elected five-member Town Board comprising the Town Supervisor and four council members. The Town's budgeted appropriations for the 2012 fiscal year were approximately $5.2 million.
The Board and Supervisor did not meet their fiscal oversight responsibilities. Nearly every aspect of the Town's financial operations was weak and highly susceptible to errors and irregularities occurring without detection.
