On September 19, 2009, Peter J. Weishaar, Esq., was one of several featured speakers at the Western New York Fire District Legislative Association's 2009 Workshop at the Batavia Party House. He discussed the need for fire districts to develop investment and cash management policies as well as the recent amendments applicable to procurement policies.
Mr. Weishaar noted that "Recent comptroller audits of fire districts have focused on the adequacy of cash management and investment policies, which is not surprising in the current economic environment." He also noted that "Fire districts are required to have policies in place to protect deposits that exceed the amount of FDIC insurance otherwise applicable to the district's accounts."
Mr. Weishaar represents several fire districts in Monroe County. His municipal practice also includes the ongoing representation of planning and zoning boards, and he also represents municipalities as special counsel in litigation matters.
