Jim and Doug Ahlberg are trying to recoup the costs to Mutual aid departments from the Hallam tornado. Doug will be filing an APR for us. He needs the exact time a piece of equipment was used. He suggested we start building a billing process for use between mutual aid departments for equipment and manpower. the 2004 ODP money came in and will allow for the purchase of one mobile repeater for each department. Cretes new aerial is in service.
