State Auditors Say Arkport Needs To Work On Billing System, For Water Bills

July 23, 2020

ARKPORT, NY – From the State Comptrollers Office:

“Auditors found complete and accurate accounting records were not maintained, the modified accrual basis of accounting was not used and interfund activity was not properly reported. As a result, the board could not adequately monitor the water fund’s financial operations. The board did not properly segregate water billing and collection duties or establish compensating controls. In addition, late penalties were not properly assessed on unpaid water bills.” Response from Arkport Village Hall: “Village officials generally agreed with our recommendations and have initiated or indicated they planned to initiate corrective action. Appendix B includes our comment on an issue raised in the Village’s response letter.”
