North Naples Fire District Receives an Excellent Financial Bill of Health
Each year, the North Naples Fire Control and Rescue District undergoes a rigorous process to prepare for and assist independent auditors who review the District's financial practices and statements in accordance with Government Auditing Standards, and then submit a report to the Auditor General as required by state statute.
We are pleased to report to our residents that the audit of the fiscal year ended September 30, 2013, for the seventh consecutive yearThis is indeed an achievement of which we are extremely proud, referenced "no comments", meaning the auditors found no areas of non compliance or issues which needed to be corrected or identified for the Board of Fire Commissioners. This is indeed an achievement of which we are extremely proud, and reflects the diligence of the District in the establishment and maintenance of internal controls, policies and procedures, reporting accuracy, and financial solvency. It also means that the financial information the Board receives on a monthly basis, and which is the basis for their financial decisions, is accurate.
Our goal is to continue to provide the highest level of service to our residents, and the Board of Fire Commissioners continues to investigate means to ensure our revenue is adequate to meet this goal.
It is important to remember that any reduction in staffing levels, first responding stations or apparatus has a financial impact on the property owners within the District. The Fire District's ability to respond to emergencies directly affects property insurance rates, so reducing our level of service not only puts life and property at risk; it comes with a financial cost to our property owners.
