Comptroller DiNapoli Releases Municipal Audits

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced his office completed audits of the Northern Onondaga Public Library District and the Town of Sidney.

“My office's audits of local governments improve their financial management practices," DiNapoli said. "These audits are tools for local officials to make sure proper policies and procedures are in place to protect taxpayer dollars and provide the best possible service these taxpayer dollars can deliver."

Northern Onondaga Public Library District – Cash Disbursements (Onondaga County)
The district board needs to improve controls over cash disbursements to ensure that cash is properly safeguarded. Board members and the treasurer do not audit each claim prior to the bookkeeper preparing the disbursements and no one reviews the processed payroll reports prior to disbursement or regularly reviews prepared bank reconciliations.

Town of Sidney – Budget Review (Delaware County)
Auditors found that revenue and expenditure projections in the proposed budget are reasonable. The town, however, is currently reporting accounts payable in the hospital fund that are related to the hospital which closed in 2005. The town has adopted a local law to override the tax levy limit in 2014.
