Gold Hill Fire Protection District Board Meeting Minutes
June 19, 2014

Meeting was called to order at 7:08 pm. Present were Dave Sturtz, Bobby Vrba, Rich Lopez, & Rick Geesaman from the Board, Chief Chris Finn, and Citizen Gretchen Diefenderfer.

Rich noted that Donal did not take the oath of office, so is no longer on the Board, which is fine with him. We also have to elect a chair. Dave nominated Rich, who indicated willingness to serve, and he was elected 4-0. Dave was also elected Secretary again, 4-0. Rick Geesaman was elected treasurer 4-0.

Minutes were approved 4-0.

Chief’s Report: We had some “nuisance” calls, mutual aid with Sunshine, which were false alarms, and also a smoke report, which proved to be a lightning strike, which was turned over to the Sheriff. We also had a kitchen fire in Sunshine but were cancelled before we rolled, and we had a med call at the Store. The improvements to the barn were completed today, trim, weatherstripping, etc. We ordered some new voice pagers. There is a new battery in Engine 4. The spray bar on engine 1 was fixed, and Chris installed a radio and antenna in 5433 (brush truck). Fire truck search is still ongoing, and the thought is that at some point we may have to design our own truck.

New Business:

We need to replace Donal on the Board. Boyd Brown is willing, but we wish to put the word out. Gretchen will send out a notice to the Town, and action may happen in July.

Bobby found that there are no potties available through the military, but we can apply to the State to be on the list for surplus property. Bobby will put in an application. Rich will check with the County about what we may be permitted to do, bathroom-wise.

Dave noted that he will not be at the July meeting.

Meeting was adjourned at 7:51 pm.

Respectfully Submitted,

Dave Sturtz, Sec’y
