Orchard Park should adopt written policies on handling cash, state says

The Town of Orchard Park should adopt written policies relating to cash receipts in the recreation department, according to a state audit.

"They just wanted us to tweak a few things over there," said Patrick Keem, a supervisor.

Auditors from the office of Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli looked at financial records and reports for the period from Jan. 1, 2015 to Jan. 27, 2017 to see if the department properly handled cash, mostly from program fees. It found that while the department recorded and deposited receipts properly, money sometimes was not transmitted to town hall within the required 15 days, and the Town Board did not adopt written policies governing money.

Auditors also recommended the town's board adopt a policy on whether it will cover the cost of credit card processing and administrative fees.
