2017-08-17 Board Meeting Minutes

The meeting was called to order at 7:00 PM by Rich Lopez. Present were board members Paul Garabedian, Bobby Vrba, Boyd Brown and Rick Geesaman; all board present. Chief Chris Finn also attended the meeting.

Motion was made to accept the minutes of July meeting; motion was unanimously passed

Chris Finn presented the Chief’s Report. Three campfires since the fire ban had been reported. There also had been several medical calls. Finn also reminded the board that many of the firefighters will be out of town to witness the solar eclipse. There was a brief discussion about sending a thank you note to the Left Hand Fire Department for the “new” fire truck. Rich Lopez volunteered to write the letter.

There was discussion about the complaints received by the Chief regarding the water fight during this years Fourth of July parade. Water fights happen every year, but this year the battle escalated. The net result is that there will be no more water fights allowed associated with the parade.

Rick Geesaman reported that he had learned how to update the GHFD website with the minutes from the board meeting. Dave Sturtz provided the teaching. All minutes to date have been added to the website.

We had a quick review of the Meadow Cistern project. There has been no progress to date. Don Ash, the project engineer, hopes to get the survey started within the near future. Chris Finn suggested we get Scott Cox and Associates (the engineering firm) to bill us soon so we are able to pay out of this years budget.

Rich Lopez suggested that a call box be put at the bottom of Lickskillet Road at Left Hand Creek. Rich will contact the appropriate personnel with Boulder County to get this process going.

Meeting was adjourned at 7:50 PM. Next meeting with be September 21st, 2017 at 7:00 PM.

Respectfully submitted,
Rick Geesaman
