Town of Canandaigua Releases Draft Corrective Action Plan (CAP)
Following Audit by the New York State Comptroller’s Office
(Canandaigua, NY) - The Town Board of the Town of Canandaigua extended appreciation to the New York State Comptroller’s Office for an audit recently completed relating to the fiscal and operational management of the Town of Canandaigua.
Auditors from the New York State Comptroller’s Office spent approximately six months at the Town Hall between October 2016 and April 2017 conducting an audit of Town operations relating to fund balance, water operations, and information technology for the time period between January 1, 2015 through April 12, 2017.
The audit findings identified twenty one recommendations ranging from adoption of information technology policies, adoption of long-term capital planning, recommended changes to the Town’s fund balance policy, and adoption of policies and procedures relating to water district operations and billing.
“The findings of the New York State Comptroller’s Office confirmed the path the Town Board had already begun to make operational efficiency improvements through personnel, policy, and fiscal improvements completed early in 2017”, said Greg Westbrook, Town Supervisor. “Many of the corrective actions identified by the Comptroller’s Office have been in the works for some time including planned construction of the new highway facility, capital planning, and overall administration responsibility through the Town Manager, who was appointed in March 2017.”
The Town Board has set a public hearing for October 16, 2017 on a proposed Corrective Action Plan (CAP) in order to hear from residents regarding the areas for improvement. The Corrective Action Plan is available for viewing on the Town of Canandaigua website. After comments and consideration by the Town Board, the Corrective Action Plan must be submitted to the New York State Comptroller’s Office.
