Board Member Reports:

Mary Esther:  The PV Irrigation company is putting in 8-10 new fire hydrants.  They originally thought they could get a grant to pay for those, but when the grant didn’t come through, they are now asking us to absorb the costs for those Jeff asked if we even needed new fire hydrants.  Gerald and John did an analysis and we could possible use 6, but currently it is not in our budget for that kind of money to pay for them.  And also if we were going to pay for new hydrants, we would much rather see some of them go on Lloyd Canyon were we figure there is a larger need for them.

Spence: N/A

Dall: Fire Station Addition: Dall met with JMI on Monday to go over the ground plans for the new addition to the fire house.  They should be starting on May 1.  The 1st step will be excavation, then after that the post office building will be moved. * Jeff was asking if it was time for an Impact Fee review.  Spence suggested waiting until he could confer with Dave Patterson about the newest legislation rules regarding structure of Impact Fees.

Jeff:  N/A

h. Treasurer’s Report – George:  See attached report.  * George went to the state auditor’s training.  There was lots of information regarding Impact Fees, reporting of such, requires certification because the legislatures are looking at them state wide pretty closely.  George also learned about the 5 levels of public records. * The CPA is working on the report for 2008. * We will need Builder’s Liability Insurance because of the construction project.  George will call about that. * Because of all of the recent expenditures concerning the building expansion, George is asking that the Board wait until all the money falls into place for that before authorizing any further large expenses.

2 –   Public Comments: N/A


Jeff moved for the meeting to adjourn at 6:20.  All were in favor.
