Recommendation #8 To: Fallen Leaf Lake Community Services District

To rectify the excessive reimbursement amounts it received for strike team assignments, the district should, by December 31, 2019, work with Cal OES to identify the amounts of excess reimbursements the district received for 2013 through 2015 and then develop and implement a plan for returning those amounts to the paying agency.

1-Year Agency Response

As indicated in the District's response to this Recommendation (contained within the Audit Report), the District "will work with OES to determine overpayment, if any, for the calendar years 2013-2015 and, if so, will develop and implement a plan for returning any excess monies received." On August 15, 2019, District officials conducted a teleconference with representatives of Cal-OES to discuss the process to review of any excessive payments to the District during the period in question. The District has also been in regular communication with Cal-OES concerning the subject matter. The District's expectation is that Cal-OES will make the determination as to whether any excessive monies are owed for the period in question, using the full cooperation of the District and its resources. As far as the District is aware, no determination has been made by Cal-OES.
