State Audit Faults JC for Loss of $1.1 Million in Tickets
According to a State Comptroller's report, a failure by the Johnson City Board and Justices to oversee Village court cash receipts has led to the loss of $1.1 million in unpaid traffic tickets from 1986 to 2013.
The audit recommends an annual audit of the Justices' records, implement policies for the enforcement of unpaid parking tickets, and perform monthly reconciliations for fine and bail accounts. In a response to the Comptroller Johnson City Mayor Greg Deemie wrote that the Village is in full agreement with the draft findings and recommendations. He writes the Village's new Justice and Court Clerk are starting to implement those steps.
