Pomona, NY - November 24, 2017

A audit program implemented by the Purchasing Division and Troy & Banks of Buffalo, NY, who audits telecommunication and utility bills, has resulted in over $100,000 in refunds to the County, in 2017 year to date. Troy & Banks is conducting a complete and thorough review of the County's telecommunications and utility structure to determine if the County is entitled to refunds and if the County can experience savings through a reduction of unnecessary telecommunications services. To date, refunds have been received from Orange & Rockland Utilities, Verizon, and Verizon Wireless. Troy and Banks is continuing their audit, which will also include the auditing of Gross Receipts Taxes due the county and collected by telecommunications companies, as well as the County's water bills with Suez.
