"As auditors we are required to remain impartial and independent of political parties, personalities and policies. We are elected/appointed officials of the township and do not make policy regarding any township business. We are called in after the fact to analyze, review, observe, inspect and confirm the township's record."We found the books to be in excellent financial condition. The records are clear, concise and accurate. We appreciated secretary Dennis Thompson's cooperation and assistance in working with us in making required adjustments for accurate entries in our audit. Mr. Thompson's patience and diligence helped our committee to a much better performance in our audit."Pick up a copy of the Friday, April 13, 2012 edition of The Ridgway Record for more.Next meetingHorton TownshipBoard of SupervisorsWednesday, May 96 p.m.Municipal Building
