§ 380. Moneys of the authority
All moneys of any authority, from whatever source derived, shall be paid to the treasurer of the authority. Said moneys shall be deposited in banks, bank and trust companies or under savings contracts in savings associations, in one or more special accounts. Such special accounts to the extent the same is not insured shall be continuously secured by a pledge of direct obligations of the United States of America, of the Commonwealth or as otherwise provided by law having an aggregate market value, exclusive of accrued interest, at all times at least equal to the balance on deposit in such account. Such securities shall either be deposited with the treasurer, or be held by a trustee or agent satisfactory to the authority. All banks, bank and trust companies and savings associations are authorized to give such security for such deposits. The moneys in said accounts shall be paid out on the warrant or other order of the chairman of the authority, or of such other person or persons as the authority may authorize to execute such warrants or orders. Every authority shall file an annual report with the Department of Commerce1 and with the municipality creating the authority on forms prepared and distributed by the Department of Commerce, which shall make provision for the accounting of revenues and expenses. Every authority shall have its books, accounts and records audited annually in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards by an independent auditor who shall be a certified public accountant or competent public accountant and a copy of his audit report shall be attached to and be made a part of the aforesaid annual report. A concise financial statement shall be published annually, at least once in a newspaper of general circulation in the municipality where the principal office of the authority is located. If such publication is not made by the authority, the municipality shall publish such statement at the expense of the authority. If the authority fails to make such an audit, then the controller, auditors or accountant designated by the municipality, are hereby authorized and empowered from time to time to examine at the expense of the authority the accounts and books of the authority, including its receipts, disbursements, contracts, leases, sinking funds, investments, and any other matters relating to its finances, operations and affairs.
The Auditor General of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania shall have the right to examine the books, accounts and records of any authority.
