Seaford given good report by city auditors

Last week, members of the city council received copies of the audit, conducted by Pigg, Krahl, Stern and Co., auditors in Salisbury, Md. Certified public accountants Boyd Bounds and Leslie Michalik spoke during the regular council meeting on Nov. 25. Their report showed that the bulk of the city’s income, more than 75 percent, comes from charges for services such as electricity, water and sewer. About 68 percent of the city’s expenses are generated through providing those services. Net assets at the end of the fiscal year ending June 30, 2003, were $36,535,825.
