I am making available the files from 1998 onwards that I have in my possession, including meeting minutes, budgets, auditor meetings, reorganization meetings, and more.  

Please note that these records are considered unofficial since they are not coming directly from the Township.  Also note that there may be errors and omissions in the chart below.  If you spot any errors please send an email to editor@barrettcommunity.com so that I can revise the chart.  And, if you happen to have any of the missing records in your possession, I would be happy to include them.

Earlier this year I filed a Right-to-Know request as a private citizen to view the township’s pension plan.

 

Why should residents care?

Well, for starters, township residents were taxed $55,000 in 2017 to fund the plan which has around $1 million in assets.  In the same year, the State of Pennsylvania contributed an additional $32,000 to the pension fund.

This is NOT an audit of Barrett Township

Disclaimer: The ideas expressed below are the personal thoughts and opinions of Nate Covington and do not necessarily reflect the position of Barrett Township or its Board of Auditors. 

After I was appointed auditor in November 2018, I requested a copy of the previous year’s CPA audit from Pam Gardsy (Barrett Township Secretary/Treasurer, who replaced Rick Scrudato in 2015).  Pam emailed a copy of the auditor’s report, but it did not include the cover letter.  I wound up filing two Right-To-Know requests to obtain the following information:
