About the ABO

In 2005 the Public Authorities Accountability Act authorized the Governor to establish an Authorities Budget Office (ABO). The purpose of the ABO is to study, review and report on the operations, practices and finances of State and local public authorities, promote adoption of effective principles of model governance and provide the Governor and the Legislature with conclusions and opinions regarding the performance of those public authorities. The Wayne County Water & Sewer Authority is a local authority. 

The ABO and the Office of the State Comptroller (OSC) developed a comprehensive on-line reporting system, known as the Public Authorities Reporting Information System (PARIS). The WCW&SA along with the other authorities in New York State submit their budget reports, annual reports, and copies of their independent audits to the PARIS web site. 

This is public information, available to anyone with Internet access. You may view the reports submitted by public authorities here.
