WYOMING — Borough officials have to make up for lost ground to pay the borough’s full share for the police pension plan.
The state Department of the Auditor General released an audit covering the calendar years of 2010 to 2012. The audit indicated the borough has an unpaid balance of $134,674, plus any applicable interest, from 2011 to 2013.
The borough could lose state funding contributed to the borough’s police pension until the debt is settled. The state contributed a little over $23,000 to the borough’s police pension plan in 2013.
“As long as they’re cooperating, that’s taken into consideration,” said Susan Woods, spokeswoman for the Department of the Auditor General.
The audit also indicates the borough failed to provide an intervening military service credit provision. That could result in members or their beneficiaries receiving incorrect benefit amounts or being denied benefits they are entitled to.
Calls to borough officials in Wyoming on Thursday were not returned.
