The Hamburg Town Board did not properly account for Woodlawn State Park Beach receipts and neglected to adopt written policies and procedures for purchasing fuel from gas stations, as well as monitoring fuel held in its reserve tanks, according to an audit by the state Comptroller's Office.
Daily tally and gate summary sheets for entrance fees to Woodlawn State Park Beach were not accurately completed, the state Comptroller's Office said. As a result, state auditors were unable to determine whether employees properly collected fees for all tags that were issued, nor whether they were complimentary or discounted.
Meanwhile, according to the audit, out of 267 individuals on the town's authorized driver list of active employees, auditors found that 148 of those on the list were not current employees.
The town has agreed to take corrective action, the state Comptroller's Office said.
