What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

EXAMINER'S NOTES The Treasurer has permitted an overdraft in the Gen- tiral Fund in the amount of $7.27. Whether the amount be large or small, it is illegal to permit such a condition. You are referred to Sections 4752 to 4756, inclusive, R. C. M. 1921, which provides for the disposition of a warrant against a depleted fund. No fund should ever be allowed to be overdrawn. We found that your minutes were written up to date 'and neatly but they failed to include the designation of your depository bank and the approval of the Custodian's _Receipt securing the Town's Funds. This matter is of - great importance and you should have your minutes show the designation of your depository bank and a full minute entry of the approval of your securities pledged for your • Town deposits. (See Chapter 49-1929 Laws.) The examination fee for 1930 was paid by Warrant , No. 3764, issued May 6, 1930. The Clerk's Annual Financial Statement for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1930, was submitted to the State Ex- ' aminer in compliance with the Statutes. The Clerk re- ceived State Examiner's Receipt No, 292 in evidence thereof. CLAIMS: • The claims were found to be in good form and in most instances met with legal requirements. We wish, how- ever, to call your attention to the following claims: No. 3823, lacked date services were rendered. Nos. 3796, 3781 and 3723 were not 'subscribed and sworn to as required by law.
