TOWN OF SEABROOK



AUDITORS' OPINION



We have examined the financial statements of the various funds and
groups of accounts of the Town of Seabrook, New Hampshire for the year ended
December 31, 1979, listed in the foregoing table of contents. Our examination
was niade in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards and accordingly,
included such tests of the accounting records as we considered necessary in the
circumstances.

As is the practice with most New Hampshire communities, the Town of
Seabrook has not maintained a record of its general fixed assets and accordingly,
a statement of general fixed assets, required by generally accepted accounting
principles, is not included in these financial statements.

In addition, the Town has not capitalized the cost of property and
equipment purchased by the Enterprise Fund (Water Department). Likewise, no
depreciation expense is recorded on this fund. Generally accepted accounting
principles require that property and equipment of enterprise funds be capitalized
and depreciated over the useful lives of the assets. The Town's records do not
permit the application of adequate procedures to enable us to determine the
cost value of capital assets or related depreciation expense on them.

Because of the material effect of the omission of fixed assets and
related depreciation on the financial position, we do not express an opinion on
the financial statements of this Enterprise Fund.

In our opinion, the financial statements listed in the aforementioned
table of contents, other than the financial statements of the Enterprise Fund
(Water Department), present fairly the financial position of the various funds
and groups of accounts of the Town of Seabrook, New Hampshire at December 31,
1979, and the results of operations of such funds for the year then ended in
conformity with generally accepted accounting principles applied on a basis
consistent with that of the preceding year.
