Township Given 'Unqualified Opinion' in 2011 Audit Report

Three deficiencies are being addressed by administrators, according to Township Council

An audit of  2011 state fiscal year operations gave the township an "unqualified opinion," citing three deficiencies that officials said Monday are being addressed. 

"We did very good this year," said Township Council Vice President Brendan Weiner. "There weren't too many issues when compared to the size of our town."

The council passed a resolution acknowleding that the members received and reviewed the document. The unqualified opinion is the highest that can be given. 

Auditors found that the Recreation Department charged youth football program fees differently than was set forth in a township resolution.

"That has been addressed," Weiner said. 

The township failed to prepare a year end report for the capital sewer funds. Manchester controls the water systems in town, after taking over from United Water the Crestwood Water and Sewer Companies in February of 2010 and the eastern service area in July of 2011.

"We have began working on those things," Weiner said.

The final recommendation is one that "almost every town in the state" receives, according to Weiner. Police department tickets, which expire every 180 days, were not properly disposed of. 

"There were some tickets that were issued to police officers that weren't turned in," Weiner said. "They were sitting in a closet or something, but we're in the process of recalling those tickets."

A copy of the audit report will be posted to the township website, said township CFO Diane Lapp. 

Lapp said that meetings with department heads will soon begin to finalize a six month budget which will begin on July 1. , meaning that on Jan. 1, 2013, the township will begin a new budget cycle.
