     The meeting was called to order by Chairman Mr. John Brose and all said the Pledge of Allegiance. 

     The meeting was then turned over to Mrs. Stalling who asked for nominations from the floor for Chairman of the Board for 2017.  Mr. Jeff Rosebrook nominated Mr. John Brose for Chairman of the Board, seconded by Mr. Terry Cook. Brose, yes, Rosebrook, yes and Cook, yes.  Chairman Brose then asked for nominations for Vice-Chairman of the Board.  Mr. Brose nominated Mr. Terry Cook for Vice-Chairman, seconded by Mr.  Jeff Rosebrook.  Brose, yes, Rosebrook, yes and Cook, yes.  Mr. Jeff Rosebrook will be the member for 2017.

           The minutes of the previous meeting was given to the Trustees to read prior to this meeting.  Mr. Brose asked if there were any additions or corrections to the minutes and then asked if there were any additions or corrections to the financial statements that were given to the Trustees from the fiscal officer.  They both stand approved by the trustees.

     Fire Chief, Doug Henry, asked if the wall hangers for the old furnaces could be taken down in both buildings.  All Trustees agreed to have them removed.

     The doors at the fire house need something done with them. We are going to put new rubbers on the bottom of them. They have already been ordered. 

     Doug would like to have a 2 ½” connection on the fire hydrants (gate valve). They are a slow opening and closing of the hydrant.  They are at FSS for $500.00 each and he would like to have 2 of them.  Mr. Jeff Rosebrook made a motion for said purchase, seconded by Mr. Terry Cook.  Brose, yes, Cook, yes and Rosebrook, yes.

        The grass truck still needs to go to Payne’s to be worked on.  John and Doug needs to take it out for a ride.

      Squad Chief, Dave Cook, reported that we have had 1 squad run so far in 2017. 

     Dave Frangis, brought up about a LED light to put above the tanker.  Dave will give it to the Trustees to install it.  Dave Frangis is going to donate this light.  It is an outside light to go above the door to get into the firehouse.

      John brought up about needing a couple round lights for the bathrooms in the Lodge Hall.  Dave needs to go over and look and see exactly what we need for him to get at Loeb’s. 

     Sandy Wilcox brought up about the uneven floor at the firehouse.  She is concerned about it on voting days since that is where we vote now.  Not sure what we can do to fix it.  Either saw it out and re-cements it, or grinds it out and then replace it.  The shelter house in the back at the park needs to have this done also.  John said we need to have someone come out and look at it and advise us on what needs to be done to fix this.

     Mr. Brose reported that they had a funeral today.

   Terry brought up about the lodge roof, John said he got an email from the company today saying that they haven’t forgotten us, but the weather is not cooperating to do this right now.

     Terry brought up about the back shelter house in the Park, it needs help.  It needs spouting. The Masons want to adopt the middle shelter house; they want to put a plaque on it saying the East Liberty Masons.  John said that they need painted and they will probably paint them this summer.  There needs to be some work done on the middle and the back shelter houses this summer. 

     The Records Training is going to be in Bellefontaine.  She has signed up does John want to go to?  It is March 16 at 10:00 a.m...  Yes John said to sign him up also. We have to attend this once per term in office.
