Manor.

The discrepancy between township records and bank records was discussed at the regular township meeting on July 15. A review by the township's accountant revealed the township has "significant accounting problems." At the regular meeting, Anna Rogers, township clerk, read the conclusion of the accountant's summary. "At this point, I do not believe that your township's general ledger is auditable, and failure to correct the problems will most likely have a negative impact on the township's ability to receive an unqualified audit opin- ion within your financial statement audit for the year ending March 31, 2014," the conclusion stated. Rogers said the township's ledger had not been recon- cried with the bank statements since sometime in 2012, and the accountant suggested either going back to March 31 of 2012 and reconciling or making adjustments to reconcile as of March 31, 2013. "Personally, as the incoming clerk and as a taxpayer, I think you need to make sure everything is correct and accurate," Rogers told the other board members. "Un- fortunately, it's going to cost the township some money to do that." See Accounting problems on page 13 ! A BRIEF, BUT POWERFUL STORM blew through parts of Montmorency County last Thursday.
