Delivering the results of his 2014 audit in the form of a 139-page report [see link below], auditor David Kaplan said the current-account balance, from which the town pays most of its bills, was $1.62 million at year-end, up, $164,500 from a year earlier, and that bonded debt dropped to $17.3 million, down from $19.6 million.
“Obviously, that doesn’t happen by magic,” Kaplan said, referring to the current account surplus.
