No issues uncovered in Millstone municipal audit

MILLSTONE – No recommendations for corrective action were made in the 2019 municipal audit of Millstone Township’s municipal finances.

During a Township Committee meeting on Aug. 19, members of the governing body passed a resolution to adopt the audit.

According to state law, the governing body of every municipality must have an annual audit of its books, accounts and financial transactions. Millstone Township’s audit was conducted by Holman Frenia Allison, P.C.

According to the resolution, the 2019 audit contains no recommendations and because no recommendations were made, officials were not required to prepare a corrective action plan.

By passing the resolution, the committee certified to the state Local Finance Board that all members of the governing body had reviewed, as a minimum, the sections of the annual audit entitled “General Comments and Recommendations.”

In other business, committee members authorized continued membership with Minnesota-based Sourcewell and authorized a contract through Sourcewell with P.L. Custom Body and Equipment Co. for the purchase of an ambulance and related equipment.

According to a resolution, the total for the ambulance and related equipment is $182,607. The purchase was initially $192,955, but a discount of $10,348 was applied through Sourcewell and P.L. Custom Body and Equipment Co.

And, committee members passed two resolutions requesting that the state approve the insertion of $21,000 and $583 into the 2020 municipal budget. The $21,000 will be appropriated for the 2020 Municipal Alliance Grant. The $583 will be appropriated for the fiscal year 2019 Alcohol Education and Rehabilitation Fund grant.
