Purpose of Audit

The purpose of our review was to assess the Fire District’s progress, as of September 2019, in implementing our recommendations in the audit report released in January 2017.

Background

The Pocatello Fire District is a district corporation of the State, distinct and separate from the Town of Wallkill, in Orange County. The Board of Fire Commissioners is composed of five elected members and is responsible for the District’s overall financial management. The Board appoints a Treasurer and a Secretary. Budgeted appropriations for 2016 totaled approximately $300,000.

Results of Review

Based on our limited procedures, it appears that the District has made minimal progress implementing corrective action. Of the nine audit recommendations, two recommendations were implemented, two recommendations were partially implemented and five recommendations were not implemented.
