FRANKFORT, N.Y. -- An appointed budget officer for Frankfort claims there have been no surprises yet in combing through the town's finances.

Harold Hutton was appointed as a budget officer back in October. A month earlier, Joe Kinney stepped down as town supervisor after it was discovered that he failed to properly record Frankfort's finances for the past several years.

"We're making progress, we will be fine," Hutton said. "I do not have any results of any state audits, but the annual report to the state comptroller will be submitted on time. They usually require it probably by March 31st, but I expect it to be submitted before that."

Town officials maintain no funds were mismanaged during Kinney's tenure.
