Ms. Gleaves answered all questions from the floor and then left the meeting as she had another meeting to go to. There was a lot of discussion, and matter was tabled until Mr. Rosebrook is back in attendance. Mrs. Joy Litteral reported that the EMS is checking into new squads. She reported that Mr. Darin Robinaugh told her that Perry Township has received around $80,000.00 in revenue from squad runs for the last 5 years. The squad we have now is 14years old. Most departments only keep them for 10 years. The EMS personnel have looked at a couple different squads. They have also looked at re-mount squads after 10 years. You keep the chassis; you just get a new box. And at that time you would get a new 10 year warranty, and we would get a loaner squad while ours was in the process of being updated. A re-mount runs around $90,000.00. Life Line is the company that does this re-mounting, and they would like for the Trustees to look at this squad. Mrs. Litteral stated that if they don’t have a new squad by next winter, they want the chains back on the tires, as it has been horrible getting around this winter without them on. Mr. John Brose said that he has checked into this and we can get the chains on for around $1,500.00. The EMS personnel would like to have the Trustees support and be behind them on getting a new squad. Mr. Brose told them to wait until after the Nov. election and we see if the Fire Levy passes before we make any decisions. Squad Chief, Dave Cook, reported that the vacuum splint pump doesn’t work anymore. A new one costs $179.00. They also need some IO needles, they are $115.00 each and would like to have 2 of each size and there are 3 sizes, for a total of $690.00. Mr. Larry Wellington brought up about the house number signs; they are still trying to get a grant for this. Fire Chief, Keith Montgomery, reported that the primer on the grass truck got frozen. Fire Safety Services has come and fixed it. Chief told the Trustees that the fire dept. needs to have some brake fluid from NAPA. There was some confusion on the weekend sign-up, but was discussed at the meeting and cleared up. Mrs. Bonnie Brose reported that she contacted Mrs. Virginia Stanford, about her property on N. Main Street. Virginia and her son went through the house and her son left the front door open. Kim Sharp called the Sheriff’s office and reported it, as it is a safety issue. It is now boarded up. Bonnie has taken the paperwork out to Virginia to fill out to proceed with getting it turned in for the grant to tear down the house.

It takes $35.00 to take the test and is a very hard test; you have to know all about different chemicals to pass the test. So as of right now we are out of the mosquito spraying business, until we can figure out something else.
