Board Member Reports: Discussion regarding the consideration of consolidating special service districts or incorporation of Pine Valley. Feasibility study to be conducted. Meeting to be held with the Mayor of Virgin to discuss their experience with this matter.
Alan presented board with preliminary plans for new post office. New build should include enough boxes to cover the amount of new builds possible in PV. Consider cost to manage, maintenance, insurance, etc. Determine where funding will come from.
Fire Chief Report: Brad Esposito from the Wildfire Preparedness Committee and Tiffany Martineau from the county discussed our cooperation with the BLM to mitigate fire risk. Moving forward it is important to work together and maintain an updated plan. Firebreak not completely done yet. Goals of increasing number of hydrants would decrease hose length to effectively fight fires. Also, meet with other entities to develop a joint coordinated effort. Additionally, assist in mitigating fire hazard for two homes in need per year.
Fire Station Open House is scheduled for October 24th. Objective is to increase fire prevention education.
Difficulty obtaining three concrete bids for new drive. Will likely need to wait until spring to get three bids.
Twelve incidents in September.
Discussed the possibility of running an ambulance through our station that would be owned by Enterprise. This would require a donation from PV to cover cost of purchase, insurance, service, etc. There is a possibility that swapping out another vehicle would compensate the cost. Bob motioned for Fire Chief to pursue specific details, seconded by Herman, all in favor.
