NYS Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli’s office recently conducted a risk assessment of the Town of Pawling’s internal controls to assess the need for operational improvement opportunities. According to Chief Examiner Tenneh Blamah, “…nothing came to our attention indicating that the Town was in need of further services from us at this time.”
Town Supervisor David Kelly explained the assessment as being conducted by a member of the Comptroller’s staff and involved interviews with Town personnel, observations, and inspection of financial records, reports, contracts, and various other documents. “As Chief Financial Officer of the Town, I strive to protect the interests of the taxpayers through solid budgeting and transparency. This report validates my efforts” said Kelly upon learning of the results.
