Division of Local Government Services
and Economic Development

January 2007

Dear County Officials:

Pursuant to the State Constitution, Article V, Section 1 and further authority vested in the State
Comptroller by Articles 2 and 12 of the State Finance Law and Section 42 of the Executive Law, we
have audited certain records and reports of the Court and Trust Funds of the County of Montgomery for
the periods January 1, 2004 through January 1, 2005 and January 1, 2005 through January 1, 2006.

Officials of the County of Montgomery are responsible for safeguarding court and trust funds entrusted
to their care. This responsibility includes establishing and maintaining an internal control structure
to provide reasonable, but not absolute, assurance that resources are safeguarded against loss from
unauthorized use or disposition; that transactions are executed in accordance with court orders and/
or statutory authorization and are properly recorded; that appropriate reports are prepared; and that
appropriate corrective action is taken in response to audit findings. Nevertheless, errors, irregularities,
or instances of noncompliance may occur and not be detected because of inherent limitations in any
internal control structure.

In performing our tests, nothing came to our attention that warrants a finding or recommendation.



Respectfully submitted,


Office of the State Comptroller
Division of Local Government Services
and Economic Development
