Comptroller DiNapoli Releases Municipal Audits

July 26, 2019

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced the following local government audits have been issued.

Town of Crown Point – Town Clerk/Tax Collector (Essex County)
The clerk did not remit real property taxes totaling nearly $1.4 million in 2017 and 2018 to the town supervisor or county treasurer each week, as required by law. The clerk also did not always deposit clerk fees within the required timeframe or remit them to the supervisor in a timely manner.

Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency – Transfer Station and Compost Facility Cash Receipts (Onondaga County)
Agency officials did not have adequate controls in place to help ensure that all cash receipts were recorded and deposited. They also did not perform periodic unannounced cash counts for all employees responsible for cash collection, as required by the agency’s written procedures.

In addition, officials failed to adequately track garbage disposal sticker and compost pass inventories and ensure that sales were properly accounted for.

City of Yonkers – Budget Review (Westchester County)
Auditors have determined that the 2019-20 budget materially complies with the provisions of the Fiscal Agent Act. However, they identified issues which impact the city’s financial condition in the current and future years.
