PLEASE READ - IMPORTANT TAXPAYER INFORMATION! 

Dear Fellow Taxpayer and Nyack Joint Fire District Resident,

Did you know that the Nyack Joint Fire District budget is proposed and managed by a 5 member Board of Fire District Commissioners elected by residents of Nyack, South Nyack, Upper Nyack and Upper Grandview?

Did you know that the Board’s fiscal management of the firehouse construction project on Park Street was the subject of a December 2009 audit by the NYS Comptroller, Thomas DiNapoli?

Did you know that Mr. DiNapoli estimates this project, originally bonded for $2.8 million, and projected to cost $3.5 million will likely cost the taxpayers $9.9 million, nearly a 200% increase

Did you know that the Nyack Joint Fire District Board of Commissioners did not provide adequate information to the Comptroller to explain how taxpayer finances were managed?

It is irresponsible that a public entity, such as the District, could enter into an agreement to construct a $3.5 million project and not have financial records supporting these costs. Without these records, the Board and taxpayers have no assurance that the $3.5 million were legitimate project costs.” 

Note 18, page 31.  http://www.osc.state.ny.us   (Search:  Nyack Joint Fire District)

Did you know that the taxpayers lease the Park Street firehouse from the Nyack General Fire Protection Company, Inc.?  And that Keith Taylor, current Chairman of the Nyack Joint Fire District is also the registered agent of this company?

Did you know that the District has already paid $2.9 million over the last seven years to the Nyack General Fire Protection Company, Inc., which still carries a mortgage of approximately $3 million?

Well, now you know and here is what you can do about it!
