Purpose of Audit
The purpose of our audit was to assess the internal controls over the sale of garbage punch cards for the period January 1, 2011, through July 23, 2012.
The Town of Oakfield is located in Genesee County and has a population of 3,250 residents. The Town includes the Village of Oakfield within its borders. The Town is governed by four council members and a Supervisor, comprising the elected Town Board. The Town's 2012 budget is $511,913.
In February 2011 the Clerk obtained 5,000 press-numbered cards for sale to the public. Each card sells for $20 and is printed with 20 spaces, which are punched by the attendant at the waste facility based on the volume of garbage the resident disposes there. The Town reported revenues from refuse and garbage sales of $39,444 in 2011, which was the first year the cards were sold.
