The State Comptroller has released another round of municipal audits. The report finds the Virgil Town Court Clerk did not collect nearly $3 thousand dollars worth of traffic tickets.
The audit released Tuesday says the town justice did not ensure the clerk was pursuing collections of unpaid traffic tickets. As a result, the court had 17 unpaid tickets during the audit period that represent $2,900 in uncollected fines and fees.
Auditors suggested the court turn the tickets over to the State DMV to enforce the collections.
Earlier this year state auditors were critical of the Virgil Town Board and Highway Superintendent. They said the Town Board did not provide adequate oversight of the town’s financial operations. Specifically the billing and collecting of water and sewer payments and the town’s fuel use.
