Board of Commissioners,

It appears that Ormond hasn’t been able to make their pension payments timely. Employees who had been checking their pension accounts were starting to get curious about a month and a half of missing money. Ormond says that they’ve deposited some of the money, and that they’re trying to find a way to pay back the interest lost by employees because their pension money wasn’t deposited timely.

Please find enclosed a memo to the above effect, dated 28-Feb-2000, from Chip Koval, house counsel for Memorial Hospital-West Volusia, Inc. I’m not sure how public it was meant to be, so I have taken the liberty of posting it on the web site.

The Board may wish to request an update on the missing pension money at the next meeting. I am sure that Ormond will be pleased to oblige.

If the employee pension money is not being handled properly, what else is going on over there? Since the books are closed, anything I could tell you would be speculation. I see no benefit to that.

I suggest that the Authority send in an auditor promptly. I would prefer to see a local firm that won’t pull their punches, rather than one of the big national firms which are scared of offending someone. You should ask Greg LeFils if he has knows anyone who might appreciate the work.
