The West Point Board of Selectmen will hold its regular meeting at 5:30 Tuesday in the upstairs conference room of City Hall.
One of the items on the agenda will be approval for the cityâ€™s 2014 fiscal year municipal compliance questionnaire. West Point Chief Administrative Officer Randy Jones said city has to complete the questionnaire every year for the cityâ€™s municipal audit.
â€śWe fill out the questionnaire for the auditors, in this case Watkins, Ward and Stafford, PLLC, and they see if what we answered follows what the audit shows,â€ť Jones said. â€śThe purpose is to see if thereâ€™s anything in our audit thatâ€™s misleading.â€ť
Jones said the accounting agency audits all of the cityâ€™s revenue and expenses. He said smooth audits can take two weeks or less, but heâ€™s seen them take as long as two months, and it depends on how many items need to be corrected.
â€śEven after theyâ€™ve came in and audited us, it takes a while to get the final reports,â€ť Jones said. â€ś They have findings and recommendations we have to respond to, then they compile your responses into the report and it may be two or three months before they have the final audit ready.â€ť
