Ulster Health Department audit to be completed shortly

KINGSTON – Ulster County Comptroller Elliot Auerbach’s audit of the county Health Department should be finished in the next several days.

Auerbach said his staff has been working on it for months and it should be ready soon.

“We hope that the Health Department report will be ready for publication somewhere in the middle of this month,” he said. “We worked diligently on reviewing and looking back at every fact that is in the report. We want to insure that all the ‘I’s’ are dotted and the ‘T’s’ are crossed before it’s released.”

The comptroller has been examining why large numbers of uncashed checks were in a department safe for years and other possible irregularities in the operation of the agency.
