Bentleyville Finance Committee
October 16th, 2013
Attendees: George Skipper, Finance Committee
Bernice Schreiber, Fiscal Officer
Members of Council: John Bourisseau, Christine Comstock, Kathleen Hale
Meeting called to order at 6:04 P.M.
The accounts payable items were reviewed, and after some discussion, were recommended for payment.
Review of the Financial Statement
With year-to-date expenses currently below budget and the earlier one-time estate tax payment, the village’s financial position is approximately $130,000 better than budget.
The fiscal officer provided an update on the status of negotiations between an accountant (tax attorney?) for a village resident and the village’s Board of Tax Review. Due to a busy schedule, the resident’s representative could not attend a meeting to present the resident’s position within the thirty days required by code. Accordingly, the village agreed to postpone the review meeting until October, 25th.
Councilwoman Comstock presented some information on the cost for holiday decorating. The Garden Club is requesting $1000 for their materials. There was some discussion about soliciting private donations to help with the cost.
Councilwoman Hale has agreed to underwrite the cost of the Solon Road bridge lighting as a memorial to her late husband, Dr. Jonathan C. Hale.
Finance Manager Items
There continues to be some computer related problems that administration and the police department are attempting to resolve.
According to the fiscal officer, the village might be eligible for a modified, less expensive audit procedure in 2015, when the next one is due.
The meeting adjourned at 6:57 P.M.
