After Board approval, the District’s budget and quarterly and year-end financial statements are available on the website www.hygienefire.org. They show the details of how District money is spent, what we have in the bank, and how much of our budget we have spent to date per quarter. The Board is conservative on financial matters, acknowledging that sometimes debt makes sense (e.g. if the interest rate is lower than the rate we receive for funds on hand – currently not the case), but usually the preference is to set cash aside each year to anticipate future equipment needs, to use cash on hand for most or all of the purchase price, or to enter into a lease/purchase to spread the cost over a short period of time. The Board of Directors works closely with the Fire Department in determining priorities while responding to changing Department needs.
