The WCFPD maintains fiscal accountability and is responsible with your taxpayer dollars. We strive to spend wisely with full transparency. All documents related to the budget must be kept on file for three years per Missouri State Law. These are public records, open to being viewed upon request by anyone during reasonable times (Revised Statutes of Missouri (R.S.Mo.) 67.060).
We use public dollars, therefore offer complete transparency. You are entitled to see how your tax dollars are being used. Each year, the WCFPD participates in an annual third-party audit. The accounting firm WCFPD currently uses is Spinner & Kummer, PC located at 50 Crestwood Exec Center # 400, in Sappington, Missouri.
Each Missouri fire district must have an annual report of its financial transactions prepared in the format prescribed by the Missouri Office of State Auditor (R.S.Mo.) 105.145). Fire districts are required to maintain their accounting records and report their financial activities on a double-entry modified accrual basis of accounting, and account for current assets, current liabilities, and fund balances of the district. Revenues are recognized in the accounting period in which they are available and measurable, and expenditures will generally be recognized in the accounting period in which the liability is actually incurred.
We invite you to explore our annual audits.
