Jewish Family Service Hosts Unique Blue Flamingo Flocking Fundraiser

Margate, NJ (December 01, 2020) – Here’s your opportunity to purchase a distinctive gift for your family, friends and neighbors this holiday season.

From now through January 31, 2021, Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties (JFS) is hosting a Blue Flamingo Flocking fundraiser in which proceeds will support our commitment to helping children, families and seniors in our region.

For $50, you can send 20 vibrantly colored birds to someone on your gift list and for $75, you can remain anonymous so they’ll have no idea who flocked them.

For $150, you can supersize your flock and JFS will send up to 100 blue flamingos to celebrate a special occasion, like a birthday or anniversary.

Add a card and gift for an additional charge.

Want to prevent your yard from ending up in the flamingo landing zone? Purchase Flocking Insurance, courtesy of Scott Brown Insurance Agency, for $100, and your home will be protected from these feathered invaders.

Flamingo migration territories include Downbeach, Somers Point, Linwood, Northfield, Egg Harbor Township, Absecon and Brigantine. Additional fees apply for Mays Landing and Galloway.

Flamingos will nest in the yard for up to 48 hours.

“When it comes to fun and creative ways to raise money to support the agency’s programs and services, the JFS staff truly thinks outside of the box,” said Andrea Steinberg, Chief Executive Officer of Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties. “This Flocking Fundraiser is a new and unique way to raise essential dollars for our agency while also bringing some uplifting and joy to neighborhoods,” she added.

The JFS Flocking Fundraiser runs from now through January 31, 2021 with a goal of raising $10,000 for services and programs.

Should you wish to volunteer to help deliver flamingos or be part of the Flocking Committee, contact Vanessa Smith at 609.822.1108, x249.

For more information or to arrange for a Flocking, Flocking Removal, Flocking Insurance or a Flocking Sponsorship, visit jfsatlantic.org or contact Kirby Reed at kreed@jfsatlantic.org or 609.822.1108, x144.

The year end December 31, 2019 audit for the Borough of Bellmawr has yielded three findings:

Finding No. 2019-001
Criteria or Specific Requirement
The payroll process should follow statutory guidelines and Borough ordinances.

Condition
The Borough did not process payroll in accordance with established guidelines.

Context
The following items were found during a test of payroll disbursements and reporting:

  1. Four employees tested were not paid according to the salary ordinance.
  2. The base salary of seven employees tested did not agree to the base salary reported on the quarterly pension reports.
  3. Amounts reported on quarterly PERS and PFRS pension reports did not agree to the supporting payroll reports for all four quarters.
  4. The quarterly pension reports for all four quarters were not filed timely.
  5. The quarterly NJ927 was not properly prepared for one quarter tested.
  6. Health benefit contributions were not calculated correctly for four employees tested.

Effect
Inaccurate and untimely payroll reports were filed with the respective agencies and employees did not receive proper deductions.

Cause
Oversight by the responsible personnel.

Recommendation
That the Borough review procedures with respect to the payroll process, and adhere to healthcare and pension deduction guidelines, including information contained in Local Finance Notices issued by the State of New Jersey, Division of Local Government Services.

View of Responsible Officials and Planned Corrective Action
The responsible officials agree with the finding and will address the matter as part of their corrective action plan.

Finding No. 2019-002
Criteria or Specific Requirement
Transactions between funds (Interfunds) should be liquidated within a reasonable period of time and transactions should be posted to the respective general ledger of each fund.

Condition
The Borough had several interfund balances as of December 31. The interfund balances between funds in the respective general ledgers were not in agreement prior to audit adjustments.

Context
During the year numerous transactions between Borough funds occurred that were not properly posted to the general ledger of each fund.

Effect
The general ledgers for the funds of the Borough were not accurate and required adjustments to agree to cash reconciliations and other interfund balances.

Cause
There were timing differences between the reconciliation function and the maintenance of the general ledger.

Recommendation
That all transactions between Borough funds (interfunds) be reviewed prior to the end of the year and that all activity be posted to the respective general ledgers of the Borough.

View of Responsible Officials and Planned Corrective Action
The responsible officials agree with the finding and will address the matter as part of their corrective action plan.

Finding No. 2019-003
Criteria or Specific Requirement
N.J.S.A. 40A:4-57 requires that budgetary transfers be approved by a resolution of the governing body prior to being over-expended.

Condition
Appropriations were over-expended prior to transfers and approved budget transfers of current appropriations and appropriation reserves were not properly recorded.

Context
One 2019 budget appropriation was over-expended twice prior to budget transfers. One budget transfer posted to the 2018 appropriation reserves was not approved by the governing body (appears to have been duplicated). One bond ordinance had commitments charged against it prior to the effective date of the ordinance.

Effect
The Borough is not in compliance with the above referenced statute and controls over current budgetary accounts are not effective to reduce the likelihood that errors could occur and not be detected.

Cause
Oversight by the responsible personnel.

Recommendation
That the Borough adheres to statutes with respect to over-commitments, ordinances and encumbrances.

View of Responsible Officials and Planned Corrective Action

The responsible officials agree with the finding and will address the matter as part of their corrective action plan.
