The town of Amsterdam has some problems with its bookkeeping, according to the Office of the State Comptroller.

The office recently sent accountants to Amsterdam to conduct a municipal audit, finding financial discrepancies and flawed records but no missing or suspicious funds.

A copy of the audit is available below.

“We’re working with the Comptroller’s Office and a software company,” said Amsterdam Town Supervisor Tom DiMezza. “We’ll have this squared away very soon.”

According to the audit report, “[DiMezza] does not maintain timely or accurate accounting records for the town,” which led to a number of problems.

The town manages its roughly $3.7 million budget through 12 bank accounts, which the report said should be managed and balanced separately.
