Case #0518

French Camp McKinley Fire District:

A District in Disarray

Although the French Camp McKinley Fire District serves a relatively small population of residents, it is also responsible for protecting many of San Joaquin County’s critical facilities. The Grand Jury investigated the processing of employee grievances and expanded the investigation into the management of the District and the effectiveness of the Fire District Board of Directors. The Grand Jury found an excessive number of grievances and lawsuits filed against the District, high employee turnover, a lack of policies and procedures, and ineffective Board oversight.
