Derry officials OK audits for fire departments

Wednesday, March 5, 2014, 12:01 a.m.
 

Derry Township's volunteer fire departments will need to obtain full financial audits for 2013 after supervisors voted on Tuesday to approve a resolution requiring audits of the two fire departments every three years.

Chairman Vince DeCario said the departments have not undergone full financial audits since he became a supervisor.

The departments will be responsible for paying for the audits, DeCario said. He noted that the township donates yearly to both departments.

Supervisors approved a holding-tank agreement between the Port-A-John Rental Co. and the township. Under the agreement, the company will provide the township a detailed pumping schedule outlining the dates and times it will empty the sewage holding tank and proof the company has a hauler under contract to dispose of waste material from the tank. The company will provide a $1,000 bond to ensure compliance with the terms of the agreement.

State police Sgt. Ryan Maher, station commander at the Kiski Barracks, said state police calls for service in Derry Township increased from 2,334 in 2012 to 3,015 in 2013.

“When I say incident or call for service, that can be anything from an aggravated assault or homicide all the way down to a motorist assist or just a question a citizen has on a property line dispute, something along those lines,” he said.

Maher also gave a brief presentation explaining the Westmoreland County Camp Cadet program, which provides children between the ages of 12 and 15 interested in law enforcement and military careers with a “paramilitary” summer camp experience. This year's camp is set for July 6 through July 11.

Applications for Camp Cadet are due by May 1, he said.
