Chiefs Report

Working on getting reports in. Computers are down.

Guys who haven't gone to sensitivity training need to watch the CD.

Fire Prevention

Fire Prevention was an overall success. There was a good turnout. There are some areas for improvement that they will work on for next year.

Chris Neroda from District 5 would like to borrow the Fire Extinguisher Prop for Avenel's Fire Prevention. Commissioner's suggested that they only let Avenel borrow and not make it public they are letting them use it. It cost too much money to be lending out to the other departments.

See attached report.

A motion was made by Commissioner Sheehan and seconded by Commissioner Higgins to accept the treasurer's report. Motion passed.

Buildings and Grounds, Commissioner Higgins

Kitchen was started. Bathroom is in the process of getting done. Need to get the job moving along. The architect will have someone up here every day to make they are on schedule.
