Rick advised that an hourly rate for reimbursement will be included in discussions for changes to the mutual aid agreement. Paul D. feels that it is critical for Rick to approve all vouchers prior to being paid. Due to the available funding, it will be natural for some entities to go after it. Caution needs to be exercised with the money. Rick responded that this hasn’t been a problem in the past. No action is taken.
