The Town Board will work with legal counsel to correct the financial control of monies with the fire department. Also examine the LOSAP program.
2. 2014-002 Segregation of Duties
The Town Board believes the cost of segregating cash receipt and cash disbursement duties from related recording functions outweigh the cost benefits received from having more people involved. The treasurer will present the board with monthly bank statements.
3. 2014-003 Clerk Software
The Town Board believes the current software prepares accurate town and state reports. Town Hall Software is a double entry accounting system. The end of year meeting covers most receivables and payables as we do not have utility bills and other residential bills outstanding. The only current payables are outstanding and in multiple years will only be off by inflation.
