FSA Independent Audit


Eternal Audit

The leaders of various Fire Service Areas have complained over the years about how the MSB was managing the FSA accounts.

NOTE: FSA money goes toward fire services in each area; but EMS is borough wide.  FSAs pay for admin services from the MSB.  EMS generally functions in conjunction with the various fire stations.  Many firefighters are also EMTs.  Thus, the accounting can be complicated.

An independent audit was conducted in the summer of 2016. (This was not the first audit that has been conducted of the FSA or RSA accounts. Apparently, there have been several over the years.)

I am trying to get a copy of this newest audit…but in the meantime…

Here are some relevant FSA meeting minutes wherein the issue/problems were discussed:

Here is a note from “Internal Auditor” James Wilson re: the Independent Audit (obtained through a Public Records Request last year for all internal audit reports; I didn’t receive any actual internal audit reports but I got a lot of documentation of the Ferry Repairs and Sale and a few other random documents including this one) –
