2021 FINANCIAL AUDIT
A representative from Maher Duessel gave the report. Revenue is up due to the American Rescue plan money, expenses are up for Police department positions and equipment. $107,000 was collected for the Library tax and the money was turned over to the Library.
Brian Sayago asked about the repeat of several management items from previous audits and wanted to know if these could be addressed so they wouldn’t wind up on future audits. (One example: no recovery plan for a technology disaster). Brian asked to meet with the auditor and township manager to discuss some of his concerns.
In regards to the bills, Brian Sayago wondered how township employees get authorized to spend township money on things such as fuel, auto parts, etc. He offered to write a policy to address expenditures.
