A state audit of the town of Middlefields finances scolds town officials for relying on one-time revenues to fund operations and consistently adopting unrealistic budgets.

The audit by the state comptrollers office in Albany determined that the town board did not approve budget line transfers from the 2011 through 2014 fiscal years, allowing various budget lines to be overspent.
