The Town does not maintain a listing of property and equipment in the
enterprise fund and does not record related depreciation charges against current
revenues. Because of this departure in generally accepted accounting principles
recommended for enterprise fund accounting, we are unable to express an opinion as
to the fairness of the balance sheet or statement of operations and changes in
retained earnings for the current year.

COMMENTS

Revenue Sharing and Antirecession Fiscal Assistance Funds

As a part of our compliance audit of revenue sharing and antirecession
fiscal assistance funds, we compared figures reported on form F-21A (required to
be filed with the Bureau of pensus annually) with audited figures for 1977. No
material differences were noted except in part V, line 6 and 7 under column A,
should be $40,000 not $50,000, Also, under column B, should be $40,000, not
$51,513, and column C, -0- not $2,240.

In addition, we discovered that Antirecession Fiscal Assistance Funds
(ARFA) in the amount of $4,166 were expended in 1978 without being appropriated
as required by Section 52.44 of the regulations. In conjunction, we could not
find that the Town of Seabrook had requested a waiver by the Director, Office of
Revenue Sharing in the manner prescribed by Section 52.43 (b) of the regulations.
The Town has custody of $5,143 of ARFA funds received in 1976 and 1977 which should
not be expended until requesting and obtaining a waiver from ORS .

Our comments and recommendations relative to accounting and internal
control are included in a separate management letter to the Board of Selectmen.

We would like to extend our thanks to the officials and office staff of
the Town of Seabrook for their assistance during the course of the audit.

Very truly yours.
