Released: June 26, 2015 -- [read complete report - pdf]

Purpose of Audit

The purpose of our audit was to determine if District officials properly awarded Length of Service Award Program (LOSAP) service credit for the period January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2014.

Background

The Clifton Park-Halfmoon Fire District No. 1 is a district corporation of the State, separate and distinct from the Towns of Clifton Park and Halfmoon, Saratoga County, in which it is located. The District is governed by an elected five-member Board of Fire Commissioners. Budgeted appropriations for 2014 totaled approximately $802,000.

Key Findings

  • The District’s LOSAP point system is not consistent with State General Municipal Law (GML).
  • Some firefighters did not receive all of the LOSAP points to which they were entitled under GML.

Key Recommendations

  • Review and amend the District’s point system as necessary to ensure it is consistent with GML.
  • Ensure that firefighters receive the points to which they are entitled.
