Inter District- A meeting of all Commissioners from San Juan, Orcas, Lopez, and Shaw to review our Fire Marshall program has not been set yet. However, when they do, our Commissioners will be meeting at OPALCO for conference call for this meeting.
Dwight Guss congratulates the Commissioners on purchasing the Station 22 property. Will this purchase affect the money set aside to finish up some of the other stations?
Yes, it will have an effect. It will have some effect. We have not redone the budget based on station 22 expenditure.
Val Harris - How would you like us to approach what we should go for, specifically capital items for this year? It is only natural to expect a ripple effect; station 24 can be finished as we need it. We should consider any donated labors and supplies to help complete projects as they come.
