The Brightwaters Village board of trustees convened a special meeting Thursday night to amend the 2012-13 budget following a recommendation from New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli’s office.
The board voted, 5-0, to pass the $2.3 million budget in early April with a $142,000 surplus. During a general audit of the village, which is ongoing, state auditors “made some observations about next year’s budget — and suggested that they consider addressing the imbalance,” state comptroller spokeswoman Kate Gurnett said.
With one resident in attendance, the village board voted Thursday to amend the budget, which takes effect June 1.
Trustee and chief financial officer Jack Riordan said Brightwaters will move the $142,000 surplus into a contingency account instead of beefing up the budget.
The next scheduled meeting of the Brightwaters board of trustees is Monday, May 7 at 8 p.m.
