The Board of Finance is looking for people with financial and accounting experience to serve on an audit committee, designed to help reduce the risk of fraud within the town’s internal controls.
The board decided to form the committee after receiving the results of consulting firm Blum Shapiro’s fraud risk assessment, which identified the following six areas of the town as being at-risk:
- Cash receipts.
- Finance Department.
- Tax Collector’s Office.
- Parks and Recreation Department.
- Building Official Department.
- Department of Public Works.
