Municipal Audits released

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli announced his office completed audits of the 

Village of Painted Post – Board Oversight (Steuben County)
The board did not adopt policies and procedures for cash receipts and disbursements, processing of user charges, payroll and information technology. The board also did not make budget transfers on a timely basis to control spending during the year.
 

Town of Schaghticoke – Water Operations (Rensselaer County)
Duties related to billings, collections, deposits and recordkeeping were not adequately segregated. The board also did not approve water billings and customer account adjustments, and did not perform an annual audit of the clerk’s records and reports.
 

City of Yonkers – Information Technology (Westchester County)
The IT department’s acceptable computer use policy was not signed or acknowledged by all employees and city officials have also not classified personal, private and sensitive information based on its level of sensitivity and the potential impact should that data be disclosed, altered or destroyed without authorization. In addition, city officials have not ensured that employees received adequate cyber security training and have not adopted a breach notification policy or a disaster recovery plan.
 


Unregistered Auto Repair Shops 

The Department of Motor Vehicles has not done enough to prevent automotive repair shops and inspection stations from operating without valid registrations, putting consumers at an increased risk to be scammed by dishonest businesses, according to an auditby New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli.
