Executive Director Report
See Attached Report
Executive Director Tarrant reviewed her report. She added that the mowing service we were using has decided not to continue with us since they were not mowing enough to make it worth their while with Mike continuing to help out. We have the mower in for repair now and will continue to use Mike until something needs to change. She also advised she would get quotes on a cleaning service at the request of Chairman Fries, but that JASCO has had problems in the past with this and people not cleaning properly and the fact that they can’t clean in the communications room. Director Dagnan and Director Francis suggested a contract cleaning person and could be available to take care of other needs with an hourly rate and part time hours. Direct Brewer agreed with this suggestion and all seemed to be in favor. There was no motion necessary at this time, but further information will be brought to the next board meeting.
Nothing to report.
Executive Director Tarrant introduced TCO Patricia LaFever and informed the board that on April 24th at 22:37hrs, TCO LaFever took an E911 call from a resident that was reporting her family member was delivering a baby. TCO LaFever performed EMD pre-arrivals and assisted the mother in the delivery of her baby boy, while over the phone. We present stork pins to telecommunicators who are privileged to assist in the delivery of babies and TCO LaFever was presented with a stork pin and certificate to keep. A picture was taken with Chairman Fries and TCO LaFever for display. Great job!
Executive Director Tarrant discussed the CAD migration being placed on hold by Chief Stewart until he can confirm their plans for the new budget. With the library changes, there may be some further discussion necessary.
Further Old Business
Further old business was brought up for discussion about the problems with our neighbors. After going into detail about recent complaints and meetings, it was suggested that we look into purchasing the property owned by the neighbors. Executive Director Tarrant will meet with them and discuss this as an option.
12:45 p.m. Director Brewer motioned to adjourn. Director Dagnan seconded the motion. Vote: 6-0. The motion was adopted.
The next Board Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday July 5th, 2016 at 12:00 p.m.
