For another consecutive year, the Valhalla Board of Fire Commissioners is pleased to report, the Fire District received the highest rating during the annual independent “yellow” book audit. Complying with state law which requires all fire districts to have an annual independent financial audit, the Valhalla Fire District underwent an independent audit, performed by the nationally recognized accounting firm, O’Connor Davies, LLP. The fire district received an “unmodified” opinion recognizing the district’s superior fiscal and strategic management – the highest rating. O’Connor Davies, LLP applauded the district’s oversight of the operating budget and the Service Award Program. The audit has been submitted to the New York State Comptroller’s Office.
This recognition affirms the Board of Fire Commissioners’ commitment to be wise and responsible managers of tax funds from the residents of Valhalla. This commitment has resulted in an exceptionally well trained and fully equipped fire department providing superior fire protection to all who live and work in Valhalla. The Board must also acknowledge and thank the all-volunteer firefighters of the Valhalla Fire Department for their exemplary dedication and service.
