An audit report released Thursday by State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli’s office praised Orleans County Social Services for its timely and accurate processing of applications for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), but noted that there still was room for improvement.

Auditors said they found that 13 SNAP clients received duplicate payments – 27 of them, totaling $7,523.

“This was due to inadequate communication between social welfare examiners in two different county Social Services programs,” the report noted.
