#3-FIRE CHIEF UPDATE
Rick reported that the water truck is still in St. George being worked on. Rick continues to work on resolving the issues with the Eagle Valley residents and is working towards getting a training program set up. Rick will attend a fire cooperators meeting on April 26 in Ely. Rick advised that the cab of the water tender is extremely noisy; he requested a head set for the inside of the truck that will allow for those using it to hear the radio traffic. Rick advised that the county burn ordinance needs to be addressed. Current burn policy for the county is very limited and basic; it needs to be revamped to include greater detail.

Four of these vehicles were awarded, including one for Pioche Fire Department and one for White Pine County. Paul M. made a motion to approve the purchase of a used Bureau of Land Management (BLM) wildland pumper in the amount of $20,000; seconded by Kevin. All voted in favor.
#6-PORTABLE WATER PUMPS
Rick would like to purchase two pumps, one for Mt. Wilson and one for Rachel. This will provide for drafting out of the tanks in these areas. These pumps will be faster than using a fire truck to do the drafting. Rick has money in his budget to cover this purchase. Paul D. made a motion to approve the purchase of two portable water pumps; seconded by Kevin. All voted in favor.
#7-REIMBURSEMENT TO RICK STEVER
Rick advised that he completed his physical, it was $88. His CDL is up in June. Without the drive test it will cost $55. Paul M. made a motion to approve the reimbursement to Rick Stever for his Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) physical and any other related costs; seconded by Paul D. All voted in favor.
The shelving will be used for storage of equipment items; located in the Panaca building. Paul M. made a motion to approve the purchase of metal storage shelves in the approximate amount of $200; seconded by Kevin. All voted in favor.
Tommy called for public comment. Connie Simkins advised that the roof is coming off the canopy at the former fairgrounds; it was created using lumber from the bunkhouse at Mrs. Waa’s. The building has been there for about 25 years and it now needs repairs. Cory Lytle advised that this issue has been addressed, but no decision was really made. The expense to repair it outweighed the cost to build a new one.
There being no further business for the Board to attend, Tommy adjourned the meeting at 10:22.
