Officials say according to the audit bank records did not match town records.
Beth Haseman was Odon’s clerk-treasurer during this time.
During the meeting, people shared concerns about whether the bills were paid on time.
They also expressed concern with Haseman in her position.
“92 percent of the late fees that we incurred as a town over this audit period were to the IRS,” Susan Roach told us. “Our town was in violation of not only state tax laws but federal tax laws as well. In my opinion, this was not only giving our town a black eye with the state and federal government but was most likely jeopardizing our credit rating as was said earlier in the evening.”
No decisions or choices were made during tonight’s meeting.
