Auditors

Town auditors play a vital role in preserving the democratic nature of Vermont’s local government by ensuring that local officials are accountable for their expenditures of taxpayers’ money. It is the auditor’s job to review the accounts of local officials and report the findings directly to the taxpayers for review. Because this report is presented only days before town meeting, the statutory scheme envisions that if the taxpayers do not like what the auditors’ report indicates about how the officials have spent the taxpayers’ money, the officials will be voted out of office. Thus, it is the auditor’s function to present an easy-to-understand picture of the town’s finances to its citizens. [from: VLCT’s Handbook for Locally Elected Auditors]
