ALBANY – The state Comptroller’s Office found fault with one component of the Town of Hillsdale’s Justice Court financial bookkeeping operations. The audit covered the period of January 1, 2013 through June 23, 2014.
The court operates with two elected justices and an appointed court clerk.
The key finding in the audit was that the justices and clerk did not perform bank reconciliations or accountability analyses.
Its recommendation included preparing monthly bank reconciliations and accountability analyses and review the accuracy of the court’s accounting records to ensure that cash balances can be compared to the reconciled bank balances each month.
