In the town’s official response to the comptroller’s office, Supervisor Bethany Kosmider said the town board will pay closer attention to the town clerk in the future.

Kosmider said the town board has requested that Woods provide the supervisor with a weekly report of all receipts and deposits. The board has also agreed to review the activities of the clerk’s office on a monthly basis and has asked for a full audit of the town clerk’s office for the past year.

The state audit looked at the clerk’s office from Jan. 1, 2010 to March 31, 2011.
