From the Selectmen’s minutes of September 12, 2016:
“Auditors had sent a letter asking the Selectmen to vote to accept their report. Discussion centered around disagreement with the report over whether or not the treasurer kept a separate set of books. Brenda’s notes said she did, but auditors had not requested to see them. Brenda will be asked to confirm with Pat she keeps a set of books separately, and request that auditors review them and remove that comment from their report before BOS can sign off on it.”
When this issue came up last year, we thought the Selectmen had developed a policy to address it. Perhaps that policy is in need of a bit of tweaking so that the auditors can read it in their own special auditor’s language.
