Spence:  Spence asked about wood for the cattle guard repair. Gerald said he had talked to Wendell Gubler about it. It is on order, but not a high priority.

John:  N/A

Jeff:  Jeff suggested that there be a concrete “snow melting” system placed around the front door of the fire station to prevent accidents and liability. John was concerned about how long such a system might last. He has not seen one that lasted very long. The Board decided to investigate this and discuss it more next month as an agenda item. * The “Straight Tip” Magazine article was mentioned. It was a very good article on the PV Fire Department. Great pictures as well.
