Old Business things from before


New Business things coming

Telluride Foundation - Kevin Koprek let the department know about this fund and that there's nearly $260,000 available to help area families. Patrick noted that it's good to promote this as much as we all can.

Fireworks - OTO is no longer employed by the city and, at this time, the city is understandably not pursuing expenditures such as big fireworks purchases. Chief checked with John Fedel on our current inventory. John felt that we had enough to put on a pretty good show.

Chief suggested, if there is enough to do both, we could do a small show on for the Ouray High School seniors who won't get a chance to go through graduation ceremonies, etc.

The thought is to try a 5-10 minute show for the seniors and then a shorter show on the Fourth.

Statewide Fire Ban - Chief updated the department to let them know that all State Parks, BLM and Forrest Service are under a fire band (they're also not in use right now) and that it's expected not to have an impact on firework shows at this time.

Membership - Chief noted that Dallas Farlin and Chris Folsom were stepping down from the department. Dallas moved to the Front Range for a new position. A motion was made to approve the resignations. The motion was seconded and passed.

MAMS - Chief noted to the department that, at this time, the June concert series is still up in the air. Our liaison was unable to attend the meeting and Chief suggested we table the discussion to May.

Burns - Ridgway still has a few burns left on the books. If it's possible to do it Wednesday, Chris Miller will relay to Craig for departmental communications. Any permitted training of such nature is fully optional for any fire fighter. Chris expects it to be out at the Peacemaker ranch on Wednesday at 5:30 pm.

Hats _ Chief noted the hats are in and at Scott's Printing. Adam will call to arrange payment and the next fire fighter headed to Montrose can pick them up.
