COVENTRY TWP. Several members of The Financial Planning and Supervision Commission believe Treasurer Mathew Muccio is dragging his feet in his work to get the district out of fiscal emergency.
During the April 5 meeting, commission member Sean Fremon said the commission has been at it for two years and the goal has been to get the school out of fiscal emergency.
"From my view, there is no sense of urgency, especially from Treasurer Mathew Muccio," Fremon said.
Fremon said he believes Muccio’s inactions he is making is resulting in the district staying in fiscal emergency longer than it needs to be.
"Things he is deciding on his own is making fiscal emergency last longer than it should," Fremon said. "Hopefully, we can see some more urgency in the future and some of these things closed out that we haven’t seen closed out for some time."
Commission member Holly Miller also voiced her concerns about Muccio making headway with the Accounting Methods Report, one of the aspects needed to be completed for the district to ask to be removed from fiscal emergency.
Muccio said there are 14 items that need addressed on the report and six of them are policy related and will be going to the school board for a first reading at the April meeting. This will still leave nine items that need addressed.
Miller asked when all the items will be addressed, and Muccio said the goal is by the end of this fiscal year, which is June 30.
"I’m tired of seeing this report," Miller said.
In other business April 5, the commission:
- Approved personnel items and contracts.
- Went into executive session for over an hour for personnel reasons at the start of the meeting. The commission also went into executive session again at the conclusion of the meeting.
The next Financial and Supervision Commission meeting is set for 4 p.m. April 26 at the Lakeview building.
