DiNapoli’s Office Completes Local Government Audit

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced his office completed the audit of Orange County – Court and Trust Funds.

Orange County – Court and Trust Funds
Auditors’ review of the county clerk’s records and bank records disclosed four instances where a referee did not deposit surplus moneys from the sale of property. The county clerk said she was unaware that these surplus moneys, totaling $26,758, were not deposited and was unable to provide reasons why this occurred and was not detected. The failure of the referee to submit all surplus moneys in a timely manner limits the rights of the individuals who have a claim to those moneys by hindering their ability to apply for and collect them.
