Each of three elected Auditors serves a three-year term, one term expiring each year. By statute, the Auditors are to “examine and adjust the accounts of all town officers and all other persons authorized by law to draw orders on the town treasurer.” The Auditors are to craft a report of their findings and distribute it to the town voters at least 10 days before Town Meeting. In East Montpelier the Auditors produce the town’s annual report, a compendium of pertinent town and school materials including the Auditors official report. The Auditors are paid on an hourly basis.
In addition to the “internal” auditors, the town engages a professional firm to do a so-called “external” financial audit on an annual basis. These audits can be seen here: External Audits
