Audit & Control

The mission of the Audit & Control Department is to safeguard and administer the Town’s assets and provide comprehensive financial management information on the financial health in support of the mission to maintain the Town's fiscal strength.

Audit & Control performs legally required audit functions, monitors the Town's finances and reports to New York State in a timely and effective manner.   The department is composed of three operating divisions (Comptroller, Payroll & Purchasing).

Office of the Comptroller

The Comptroller's Office is responsible for disbursing and accounting for all operating expenses, inclusive of wages, supplies and services (of approximately $185 million at present).  It oversees revenue collections and ensures the accurate accounting of revenues due to the Town.

The Office also manages the financing of the Town’s capital projects including multiple year construction projects and asset acquisitions (averaging approximately $15 million per year). 

The Comptroller’s Office safeguards and manages all of the Town’s cash assets and investments to maximize interest earnings and minimize risk and reviews all proposed Town Board resolutions or fiscal impact.
