The Board met in regular session with Chairman Paul Mathews calling the meeting to order at 10:24. Clerk Lisa Lloyd called the roll with Trustees Tommy Rowe, Ronda Hornbeck, Paul Mathews, Ed Higbee and Bill Lloyd being present. There is a quorum and the agenda was posted on 3-9-10 to comply with the open meeting law. Harry Birkmier is present as is Kerry Lee.

Ronda made a motion to approve the February 16, 2010 minutes; seconded by Ed. All voted in favor.

Harry reported the entry level Firefighter class is almost complete. Harry expects to test by the end of the month. April 10th an EMT class is scheduled. Harry advised they’re having a difficult time getting the text books and he requested aid from the County to pay for the books. This EMT class is open to everyone. The new EMT students pay for books and materials, and the County reimburses after the EMTs pass their tests. The retest for FF-1 practicals and HazMat Operations will be at the end of March or the first part of April. There have been a lot of dumpster fires lately and most of them are of a suspicious nature. Kerry advised there was a fire just last night. Some of the fires are caused by hot ashes, but others it is pretty obvious that someone has purposely lit the dumpster on fire. The second fire truck has arrived and is in services; the bill has been paid in full. Harry is working on the planning meeting for the HazMat drill scheduled for May 6, 2010 in Pioche; the next planning meeting is March 18th at the new Pioche fire station. There will be a meeting for evaluators on May 25, 2010.

Ronda made a motion to approve the vouchers; seconded by Ed. All voted in favor.

Paul called for public comment. None is offered.

There being no further business for the Board to attend to, Ed made a motion to adjourn at 10:32; secondedby Ronda. All voted in favor.
