#6-FIRE TRUCK PAYOFF

Kerry advised that this payoff would apply to the USDA loan obtained a couple of years ago. Money was earned through BLM this year and PFD would like to pay the loan off to save the interest. It is eight years earlier than required. Paul D. made a motion to approve the payoff of the two fire trucks; seconded by Ed. All voted in favor.

#7-AMBULANCE ATTENDANTS LICENSE FEES

Kerry advised that Panaca is short handed on EMTs, and PFD has to drive often. Legally, first responder is required and an ambulance attendant’s license is required. There are 3-4 volunteer firemen who have their first responder level and they’re willing to do this, but Kerry feels that the county should pay for the ambulance attendant’s license fee. The cost of the license is $65.00 each. On occasion, PFD has to drive and it should be done legally. PFD can afford to pay the fees, but there is a question as to who is responsible for this. Kerry suggested that the Commissioners approach this in the same manner that they do for the EMT courses. Paul D. made a motion to have this issue on the next Commission agenda; seconded by Ed. All voted in favor.

#8- PUBLIC COMMENT

Tommy called for public comment. None offered.

#9-ADJOURN

There being no further business for the Board to attend to, Tommy adjourns the meeting at 11:58 a.m.
