There were six calls for the month:
The drill for the month was a mandatory OSHA drill on April 26. The firefighters also did traffic control and parking for the Easter Egg Hunt on April 10, 2004. Commissioner Lent thanked the fire department for their help at the Easter Egg Hunt.

Chief Saulpaugh has ordered the cutters for the Jaws of Life that was discussed and approved at last meeting. Truck 604 needs rods replaced in the water tank at a cost of $50.00 for each of 20 rods. It has not been budgeted so they will have to check the budget to see where the money will come from, but they need to be replaced.

The department has met to discuss plans for Station #2. They will need a certified engineer’s report for the building inspector which they estimate to be 7% to 12% of the total cost of the project. Discussion followed on the type of structure, which will be built, either block of some type or poured foundation.

The LOSAP account managed by UBS Financial Services has a balance of $42351.26 as of March 31st. There are four firemen collecting benefits from the fund.

Commissioner Harned made a motion, seconded by Commissioner Staats to pay abstract #5, page 1 & 2 Vouchers #48-61 in the amount of $2,982.00. All in favor. So carried.
A motion was made by Commissioner Lent and seconded by Commissioner Staats to adjourn the meeting.

Respectfully submitted,
