At the Nassau County Board of County Commissioners (NCBOCC) meeting on Tuesday, July 7, 2015, Burton & Associates, a leading and highly-respected financial consulting firm, presented their findings of a comprehensive audit of the county’s finances to the county commission. The audit painted an undeniable picture of a looming fiscal crisis that could lead to the insolvency of the county, downgrades of the county’s bond rating and the inability of the county to meet its financial obligations.
