Good news! Gross revenues in the Town Courtincreased by $223,483 during the first quarter of 2005 compared to the first quarter of 2004. - this represents a 56% increase in gross revenues collected ($394,370 in 2004 to $617,853 in 2005). Hats off to Judges Doris Friedman, James Hubert and Sandra Forster. Richard Santorsola, Assistant Court Administrator had been appointed to work with the court clerk, Cecile Sia, to strengthen internal control procedures within the court structure. The court’s computer software and hardware were upgraded and court issued receipts are now computer generated with computer issued receipt numbers. The court’s vehicle and traffic backlog has been significantly reduced. Policies and procedures have been implemented to streamline the operation of the Court and to require court employees to be more accountable with regard to collection, reporting and depositing of court funds. Significant security measures were also undertaken. Serious internal control problems that had existed in the past at the court have been resolved.
