Melissa Reimer, the Town’s Supervisor of Fiscal Services is being accused of sending information that indicated that Ramapo faced “certain fund deficits”, omitted $3.5-million in anticipated revenue and did not have the forms authorized by the town board members and Supervisor St. Lawrence.  According to the Comptroller’s Office, the Town Supervisor is legally required to file and certify the forms.

According to the town, her report led to State Comptroller Tom Dinapoli’s determination that Ramapo is on the hot list of municipalities in “significant fiscal distress.”

Reimer defended herself in an interview with the Journal News saying in her 10 ½ on the job.  She sent the correct information the same way she always has and that that the information on the anticipated revenue wasn’t made available to her.  She also claims that the Supervisor never reviews the forms and the Town Board has never passed a resolution to authorize it.

Ramapo is currently ranked the second-most fiscally stressed community in the state.
