State audit finds faults with Jamestown budgeting

Oct 8, 2016

The office of State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli has released an audit of the City of Jamestown.

The audit was undertaken in review of the city's financial condition covering a period from 2012 to 2016. Key findings in the study indicate that city officials have adopted budgets that are not structurally sound, have overlooked developing a multiyear financial plan and that city leaders have not budgeted or accounted for health care expenditures.
