Municipal audits released by state comptroller

ALBANY -  State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli’s office completed audits of the Town of Byron, Town of Lisbon and the Town of Shelby.


Town of Byron: Internal Controls Over Justice Court Operations (Genesee County): Town Justice Court operations were not properly segregated and town officials failed to provide sufficient evidence that annual audits of the justices’ books and records were conducted. Further, the justices did not always enforce unpaid tickets or report transactions in a timely manner.

Town of Lisbon:  Financial Condition (Cortland County) The town board has not developed accurate budget estimates or a formal, comprehensive multi-year financial and capital plan to adequately address the town’s long-term operational and capital needs. As a result, the town’s general fund has retained excessive amounts of unexpended surplus fund balance.

Town of Shelby:  Financial Management (Orleans County) The town supervisor did not maintain accurate computerized accounting records. Adjusted bank balances were approximately $997,800 less than cash balances in the town’s computerized accounting records. Also, the town justice did not properly oversee town court operations.
