Louisiana legislative Auditor Report Re: Washington Parish Fire Protection District No. 7

Investigative auditors found the district’s secretary provided inaccurate and incomplete information to the Louisiana Workforce Commission and collected COVID-19 pandemic unemployment benefits despite continuing to work for the district. She received a total of $28,490 in benefits between April 2020 and August 2021. In addition, the president and the secretary of the fire district board knew the district secretary had applied for and received the benefits while continuing to work for the district. 

Auditors also found that a former employee contracted with the fire district to provide landscaping services during the time he was working for the district. The district paid $11,687 to the company between April 2018 and November 2020 for services. State ethics laws prohibit public servants from contracting with and/or participating in transactions involving their governmental entity.
