ROSSIE — The state Comptroller’s Office has faulted the town in an audit.

According to the findings, the town failed to maintain accurate computerized accounting records and reports.

Balance sheets did not always agree with the general ledger, resulting in the Town Council having inaccurate information on which to base decisions.

The audit also found that the town’s financial reports were filed late in 2008, 2009 and 2010, and as of December 2012, the 2011 financial report had not been submitted.

The town also failed to ensure that the records of all officials and employees who handled cash were properly audited annually. The report also found the town did not have a system ensuring all claims were presented for audit prior to payment.
