Auditor says town's finances are healthy
HANCOCK - A representative of Smith Elliott Kearns briefed the Hancock Town Council on the town's finances during an annual audit report Wednesday evening during the monthly council meeting.
Hancock's net assets are about $6.2 million, the auditor said.
The town didn't accrue any debt during the last year and paid down $66,000 in long-term debt, she said.
Some changes the town has made, such as no longer outsourcing water treatment, have helped the town financially, the auditor said.
"It's healthy, that's a word we like to hear," Mayor Daniel A. Murphy said after the presentation.
