Jon—Once we have a dollar amount we can start pursuing funding options for the New Fire Hall such as grants, donations etc. That way it will relieve some of the burden on each Town/Village.




Romaine—Let’s get it done, everyone knows we need a new place for the Fire and Ambulance.



Mick—Let Chris know he isn’t being pressured on getting a cost of the new building. Would like to possibly see funding formula similar to the Assessment formula for the Town/Village of the Fire, Ambulance and Common Areas separated because some Towns don’t have both Fire and Ambulance.
