State Comptroller’s Office gives Port Jervis good grades

PORT JERVIS – A review of selected operational areas of City of Port Jervis government by the State Comptroller’s Office found nothing that indicated the city was in need of further services at this time.

The state auditors interviewed personnel, observed and inspected financial records, reports, contracts and other documents and came to the determination nothing warrants further services.

Mayor Kelly Decker was very pleased with the state response.

“Usually you get one or two things that they might suggest that they do. To not get anything at all is really encouraging that we are moving the city is the right direction,” he said.

Decker said when he was first elected as mayor he asked the state to conduct an audit of the city’s financial practices and to get a clean bill of health now is very rewarding.

Port Jervis officials expect the city's bottom line to get even better as new economic development opportunities present themselves.
