Board Member Reports
Mary Esther suggested we send a Note of Thanks to Glen Mack for the donation from the Edith Green Fund. She agreed to send the Note. Mary Esther is arranging our quarterly meeting with the County.
Allen asked about our CD in the bank. It had been renewed recently. He suggested if we ladder the CD into three smaller ones, then if we have to break the CD to access cash prior to the CD term rate, we wouldn’t pay a penalty. Bob agreed with this. Rick explained the interest is so low on small CD’s he went with the one large one. Rick also explained the Bank historically has not charged us a penalty when we need to access cash. The Bank cannot put this in writing as it is up to their willingness at the time.
Fire Chief Report: Steve went over the six incidents in February. The people in Town are purchasing Flags from the Fire Department for themselves or to donate to the Town to place on the road coming into the Valley and on Main Street. The cost of these Flags is $20. The Firemen will sink pipe into the ground at the fence line for the Flags. They will be flown on the Patriotic Days in the summer.
Treasurer Report: Rick reported at this time the Fire Department has 33 volunteers: 8 active EMT’s and 25 Fire Fighters. Rick reported he had to increase our Bonding on Employees as our income has increased. Rick read and explained the “Profit and Loss Sheet” dated February 2018, the “Profit and Loss Detail Sheet” dated February 2018, the “Profit and Loss Budget vs. Actual Sheet” dated January through February 2018, the “Balance Sheet” dated February 28, 2018, the Edith Green Fund “Profit and Loss Detail Sheet” dated February 2018 and the Edith Green Fund “Balance Sheet” dated March 3, 2018. Financials were motioned by Dave, seconded by Allen, and all else were in favor.
