New Township Auditor

I have recently been appointed auditor by the Barrett township board of supervisors.  

What’s going on with the Barrett Township auditors?  

Recent history: 
Note: Revised 12/5/18 to indicate that May Labar was appointed, not elected.

  • May Labar - was an appointed Auditor, resigned in April 2018
  • Dina Rinehart - appointed May, resigned September 2018
  • Nate Covington - appointed October 2018

 

This makes the current list of Township Auditors:

as of December 2018

  • Michelle Sisak, Chair
  • Christine Macaluso
  • Nate Covington

 

Do Township Auditors actually… Audit?

For (at least) the last few years, the audit itself has been done by a CPA firm, making the township eligible to receive grants.  

 

What are Auditors?

As a PA second-class township, we have elected auditors, which historically have been a “check” against the supervisors’ power.  The auditors used to go through the individual receipts, mileage logs, and other details when compiling the “audit” - and they got paid for it, at $10/hour.  Auditors also have the authority to review the records of the local magistrate and tax collector.  

Today, the auditors only meet once a year to “organize” the board of supervisors (for example, decide which supervisor is chairman) and decide the hourly pay rates of township employees.  

 

Do you have suggestions for how we can improve the financial / economic status of our township?  If so, please email them to editor@barrettcommunity.com or send them through the feedback form.  

Respectfully, 

Nate Covington
