e. Board Member Reports –
Mary Esther: Mary Esther proposed that January should be named “Rhean Pendleton Month” in Pine Valley. All Board Members agreed. * Received a letter from Kevin Keyes regarding the preservation of Pine Valley. She will get a copy of the letter to all Board Members.
Dall: Dall checked at the Courthouse to see about the terms of the Board Members. They are as follows –
Jeff: 12-31-15; John: 12-31-15; Mary Esther: 12-31-15; Spencer: 12-31-13; Dall: 12-31-13. * Called about the patch order and we should be receiving it very soon.
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.
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.
f. Fire Chief – Gerald (see report). Discussed was potential for sledding accidents in the Valley and on streets.
g. Treasurer Report – George (see report for December and also a summary report for 2012.)
