HANOVER, Pa. — Allegations of financial mismanagement — including missing money from fire company fundraisers, failure to properly audit records and use of public funds for a personal car payment — are among the lengthy list of complaints against four Kingsdale Volunteer Fire Co. officials, as part of a suit filed recently by company members.
According to a civil suit filed in Adams County court, four company officials — company President David Trump, Secretary-Treasurer Karen Fleharty and trustees Wayne Fleharty and Michael Reindollar — have repeatedly "breached their fiduciary duty" since 2008, when the company lost its first-response status in Germany and Mount Joy townships, the two municipalities where it previously was a primary emergency responder.
