Comptroller: Owego Records Inaccurate and Unreliable

A new report from the State Comptroller's office criticizes some operations in the village of Owego.

According to the report the clerk-treasurer’s cash and fund balance records were inaccurate and unreliable. The Justices and the Board did not ensure that parking tickets were collected, recorded and deposited in an accurate manner, and unpaid tickets remained outstanding for an average of 181 days.

In a written response to the Comptroller Mayor Kevin Millar says some of the recommendations have already been implemented. He says the Trustees will also submit a corrective plan. We'll hear more from Millar tomorrow at six.
