The town is at last caught up on its annual audits

LITTLETON — After several years of late year-end reports and a number of material weaknesses and deficiencies in bookkeeping, ledger maintenance and financial reporting, the town is at last caught up on its annual audits, and the presenter to the Select Board said the 2021 audit shows a marked improvement over 2020 and 2019. During Monday’s board meeting, Cory Philbrick, a manager with Vachon and Clukay Co., of Manchester, which is Littleton’s independent auditor, said Littleton set a record for him. Town management and finance personnel — in early 2021, the Select Board brought in a new finance director and town manager — were incredibly helpful in completing the 2021 audit, said Philbrick.
