The Town of Byron has been audited by the state comptroller’s office.
From the beginning of January 2011 to September 2012, the audit found two things: Town officials failed to provide sufficient evidence that annual audits of the Justices’ books and records were conducted and the Justices did not always enforce unpaid tickets or report transactions to DMV in a timely manner.
The Town Board, which comprises the Supervisor and four council members, is the legislative body responsible for managing the town’s operations and finances, including the financial activity of the Justice Court.
The audit recommends the town do a periodic review the DMV ticket log to ensure that tickets are properly reported as paid or enforced in a timely manner, perform a thorough audit of the court records on an annual basis, and Contact the Office of Court Administration to determine what to do about the pending tickets and whether the oldest ones are still enforceable or should be dismissed.
Town Supervisor Robert Crnkovich was unable to be reached for comment Thursday afternoon.
