Attached is the agenda for the fire board meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 11,
2013, at 6 p.m.
Our fire board represents us! They need our input! On the
agenda are two topics for discussion. One, a feasibility study on
Mr. Saladana's property. Two, the possibility of restoring our
current station. The Board would like to know your feelings -
otherwise, they make the decision. Chairman Ward is trying to get a
town hall meeting scheduled for sometime in October to discuss the
possibilities. What is your opinion????
Another topic of discussion is the Suburban that was donated by the Bollin
family in memory of Aileen Bollin. The Board does not have funding to turn
it into a Rapid Response Vehicle as they had originally planned. What
will be the fate of that vehicle??
Also the fire department has two old fire trucks. The amount of
money it takes to keep these trucks running each year matches the value of
the trucks. If an engine is lost - there goes everything! On
the agenda is an item regarding the purchase of a newer engine.
