Templeton Audits to Be Released
The Templeton Board of Selectmen has announced that it will meet in a special public session to receive the long-awaited audits for Fiscal Year(s) 2013 through 2016 in public session next week. The presentation will be at the Narragansett Regional Middle School Auditorium at 460 Baldwinville in Templeton on Tuesday, April 25th at 6:30 pm. Mr. Tony Roselli, CPA, Partner with Roselli, Clark & Associates of Woburn, MA will take the lead for his firm in presenting the materials for this unusual exit conference.
This presentation will include all the audit information for these four-fiscal year. It will also include an overview of the Management Letter which is the firm’s observations on the Town’s procedures and areas which need to be addressed by the Town going forward. John Caplis, Chairman of the Board of Selectmen, said that, “This is an extraordinary way for a Town to receive its audits but then it has been an extraordinary set of circumstances which led to such a delay in getting these four years audited. However, it was thought best, in the interest of public transparency, that the Board receive these materials in a manner where as many of our citizens may attend and hear the presentation first hand.”
It has been reported that the Town and the audit firm have also met with representatives of the Massachusetts Department of Revenue to ensure that the presentation is more than a set of financial reports but also lays out the action steps for the community to follow going forward. For those who cannot attend this special session, the meeting is being recorded by Templeton Community Television and will be available for viewing shortly thereafter. The actual published material will be posted on the web after the presentation and the Town will be issuing a special printed report compiling the materials to be made available to the public by June 30th of this year.
