Motion to approve by Waverly and seconded by Raymond. Passed unanimously. I will include copies to all with the next newsletter. Departments that haven?t still need to get repeater information to D & D.
Phil from Southwest says that the fee for the audit was taken to the County board. The County Attorney told the County Board that the Board couldn?t pay the audit fee. Southwest has went ahead and paid for the audit. It was agreed that they would bill each department for their portion of the audit. This comes to approximately $410.00 per department. Southwest will take care of mailing bills out to each department. Doug Ahlberg says Lancaster County will receive a portion of the money given to an 11 county region for Homeland Security. He also says he still needs 4 departments to return their compliance letters for NIMS or they won?t receive any grant money. Casey Mccoy the new Fire Training Manager for the Forest Service attended the meeting with Eric Rasmussen. Eric has been sending out legislative updates by email. I will try to forward these when I receive them.
