    Sec. 3.1-35-115. Comptroller; duties.
    (a) The comptroller, if one is elected or appointed in a municipality (and if not, then the municipal clerk), shall exercise a general supervision over all the officers of the municipality charged in any manner with the receipt, collection, or disbursement of the municipal revenue, or with the collection and return of the municipal revenue, or with the collection and return of the municipal revenue into the treasury.
    (b) The comptroller shall have custody and control of all municipal documents, books, and papers designated by the corporate authorities.
    (c) On or before May 15 of each year, and before the annual appropriation ordinance is prepared by the corporate authorities, the comptroller shall submit to the corporate authorities a report of the comptroller's estimate, as nearly as may be, of the money necessary to defray the expenses of the municipality during the current fiscal year. For the purpose of making this report, the comptroller is authorized to require all officers to submit statements of the condition and expenses of their respective offices or departments, with any proposed municipal improvements and the probable expense of those improvements, all unperformed contracts, and the amount of all unexpended appropriations of the preceding year.
    (d) In this report, the comptroller shall (i) classify the different objects and purposes of expenditure, giving, as nearly as may be, the amount required for each, (ii) show the aggregate income of the preceding fiscal year, from all sources, (iii) show the amount of liabilities upon which interest is to be paid, (iv) show the bonds and debts payable during the year, when due and payable, and (v) give all other information to the corporate authorities the comptroller deems necessary, so that the corporate authorities may fully understand the demands upon the municipality for the current fiscal year.
    (e) In municipalities of 500,000 or more inhabitants, the preparation of the report required by this Section and its form and substance, including the classification of the different objects and purposes of expenditures, shall be performed by the budget director of the municipality. In those municipalities the comptroller shall prepare an annual post-audit of all funds for the preceding year which shall be known as the "comptroller's report", a copy of which shall be sent by the municipal comptroller to the State Comptroller.
