State law requires all municipalities, regardless of population or budget size, to submit a financial audit to the state Treasurer’s office within 13 months of the end of that municipality’s fiscal year.
An audit must include all financial records and transactions of the municipality and any agency funded in whole by the municipality plus a report that includes the recording, collection, and distribution of applicable court fines.
