WARWICK â€” As David Dâ€™Agostino, attorney for the Central Coventry Fire District Board of Directors told Superior Court Judge Brian Stern in Fridayâ€™s hearing how the board has been focused on working to understand how the district wound up in the predicament theyâ€™re in and how to work on best practices going forward to ensure the same mistakes are not repeated.
â€śBefore specific payroll date can be analyzed, it must be understood that payroll reports and records run from January 1 to December 31 but the districtâ€™s fiscal year runs from September to August 31,â€ť Dâ€™Agostino said. â€śAs the court is aware, the levy and assessment was not set until October 21, 2013 but for all intents and purposes, the district is keeping with the September 1 fiscal year.â€ť
He explained the board is aware this it is advisory to the court and at the same time, representative to the will of the voters providing them with a voice during the pendency of the receivership.
