Ronald J Rohall webRon Rohall Appointed to State Conservation Commission

Congratulations to Ron Rohall, chairman of the District Board of Directors, on his recent gubernatorial appointment to the State Conservation Commission.

Ron will serve a four-year term on the 14-member commission, whose primary mission is to ensure the wise use of Pennsylvania’s natural resources.

The commission provides support and oversight to Pennsylvania’s 66 county conservation districts, including the Westmoreland Conservation District.

Rohall has been active for many years as a volunteer with the State Conservation Commission, as well as with the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts.  He has been a volunteer with the Westmoreland District for more than 20 years.

2013 Westmoreland Conservation District Audit

As mentioned in our current annual report, the District’s 2013 was delayed due to the District’s board decision to bring the process into compliance with the Governmental Accounting Standards Board Statement 34.
GASB contends that separate accounting and financial reporting standards are essential for governments because they operate differently from business enterprises.
Although conservation districts are quasi-governmental agencies and, in Pennsylvania, are not required to implement GASB 34 as long as it is addressed within their audit, the district board voted to adopt this accounting method, beginning with the 2013 audit, which was done by Delisi, Keenan & Associates, P.C.  That accounting firm’s Financial Analysis of the District as a Whole can be viewed here.
