Dall: Dall spoke about insulation installed in the fire house. He said that the thermostat is now set at 45 degrees which is as low as it goes. * EMT training is Salt Lake in November. Is the Board okay with sending the EMTs? All were in favor. Five of our Basic EMTs will be trained in Enterprise to become Intermediates.

g. Fire Chief – (see report).

h. Treasurer Report – George (see report).  * Gerald asked if we could use Impact Fees to place blacktop around the fire station and post office. George suggested using the next big donation towards the blacktop. Good thought! * There are currently at least two fire hydrants that need to be fixed. Should the PVSSD pay for those, or is it the responsibility of the PV Irrigation Co.? George has already spoken with Ed Evans about the costs of fixing the hydrants. A question was brought up that since the Irrigation Co. has raised our water bills so high, that maybe they might now be able to pick up the bill for fixing the hydrants. Dall suggested speaking with Dave Paterson about whose responsibility it is. Dall suggested at least going forward to get the hydrant fixed by Layne Frei’s house, with us paying for it. Currently that hydrant is just lying on the ground. The property owners are paying us for coverage that essentially they aren’t getting if the hydrant is broken.

Beverly: Brought up the subject of the annual Special Service District meeting/training in November. Someone from the Board needs to attend as it is required that the Board members receive training each year. Dall said that it was possible that he might be able to go and would look into it.
