MONROE — Auditors reviewing last year’s fiscal year made three recommendations for improvements, Finance Director Ron Bunovsky told the Board of Finance at its Thursday, June 18, meeting.
The three recommendations were all minor, and the auditors noted that the previous year’s recommendations had all been resolved.
The three recommendations are that the town develop a process for adding new vendors, change two permanent accounts to interest-bearing accounts and make changes to the process by which the individual who generates payroll checks is the same person who distributes them.
All were considered minor adjustments by the board, which noted, for example, that very few employees receive paper checks these days.
First Selectman Ken Kellogg updated the Board of Finance on Covid-19 costs and possible reimbursements during his comments at the beginning of the meeting.
The town is “tracking Covid-19 expenses pretty diligently,” he said, and he anticipates the town being reimbursed for most, if not all, costs.
Thus far, Monroe has spent less money on eligible expenses than it has available to it through state and federal programs.
