How has the District arrived in its current financial state?
The current financial state cannot be attributed to just one cause. The District’s hired a new business officer over the past year after the position had been vacant for some time after the previous business officer resigned. The District conducted an audit of its accounting records and the accounting firm and the Department of Treasury have recommended better accounting practices that the District should utilize when documenting District finances. While serious, these issues are not insurmountable and we believe that the District has the right people and guidance to put the finances back on the right track. The Board and Administration are working diligently to produce a balanced budget by June 30th that takes into account as many fiscally responsible considerations as possible.
