I bet this happens a lot.
In the wake of the revelation of up to $250,000 missing from Stockport’s town coffers, Germantown Councilman Michael Mortenson called Thursday for a special Town Board meeting to discuss an audit of the town books.
Germantown’s accountant is Brian Fitzgerald. His uncle and partner, Mark Fitzgerald, was the bookkeeper/consultant for Stockport.
“The state Comptroller’s guidelines say the board should have an audit annually,” Mortenson said. “Germantown hasn’t had one in six or seven years.”
Supervisor Roy Brown is polling board members. The meeting could take place Tuesday evening, which had been reserved for a budget workshop if needed.
