Rick Stever reported that he has visited with Emilia Cargill concerning the property at Eagle Valley; it is still moving forward and it looks favorable. Rick sent a letter to an individual in Eagle Valley who attempted to form the Eagle Valley Fire Department many years ago. This person accumulated quite a few supplies that are in/around the building at Eagle Valley. The letter requested the removal of the items and many of them are out of date. This individual has until March 22nd to remove the items. It is possible to put those items in storage, at the individual’s expense, if he fails to remove them before then. These items must be cleaned up and removed before any work on the building can begin. Rick received communication from Living with Fire; this is a program that has been encouraged in the outlying areas. LWF is an excellent program for the rural areas and they help throughout the state. LWF is conducted by UNR; the program was threatened last year due to budget cuts. There were enough petitions and comments last year to keep it active but this year there is a great deal more concern. The Board may be receiving a letter asking for support in eliminating this program. Rick stated that the elimination of this program will be detrimental to our area. UNR, if successful in merging/eliminating this program, will be able to control more funding.


Paul M. made a motion to approve the vouchers; seconded by Kevin. All voted in favor.


Ed called for public comment. None offered.


There being no further business for the Board to attend, Ed adjourned the meeting at 11:07 a.m.
