Department Reports:

Fire Chief Art Stevens reported total man hours of 289.5 for July. Expenses for the 206 account were $10,287.01 and it is 6% of budget. Expenses for the 216 account were $0.

The committee for the fire officers recommend unanimously Ted Hawk – Lieutenant, and Larry Douglas, Jr. – Sergeant. The term is until 2016.

080513 Trustee Jager made the motion to appoint Ted Hawk as Lieutenant, and Larry Douglas, Jr. as Sergeant. Trustee Wilson seconded. CARRIED.

Art is requesting the board to send a letter to the State House and Senate in opposition of House Bill
#4785. This bill would require fire departments to pay for vehicle registrations, driver licenses, and trainings that previously did not have to be paid for. It would cost approximately $3675 minimum every three years.

The question was asked whether the burned house on Holton Duck Lake was going to be a fire department
training burn. Art replied that the laws have changed and it has to be approved asbestos free before it can be burned, which has not been done at this time.

Correspondence: None

Unfinished Business: Camping Ordinance – discussed and a few changes were made. A final draft will be typed up and presented at the next meeting.

New Business: Road repairs on Brickyard Road – Mick met with Lori Peterson, and Mr. Hulka with a request for permission to patch holes on Brickyard. Leon Slater said he would patch a two mile stretch for $800 per mile. They gave us a permit to do the repairs. The possibility of other road work was suggested.
Mick will approach Leon and the road commission about this.

080613 Clerk Johnson made the motion to have Leon Slater patch the holes on the 2 mile stretch
of Brickyard Road at $800 per mile. Trustee Wilson seconded. CARRIED.

It was suggested we check and see if the County would chip and seal the stretch after the patching, or if we could get a bid to have it done ourselves.

Motion to Adjourn:

080713 Trustee Jager made the motion to adjourn the meeting at 7:050 p.m. Trustee Wilson seconded. CARRIED.

Respectfully submitted,

Melanie Johnson
