The CD is for $24,000 and reimbursements are at an all time high of $26,752.50 and the budget may have to be amended to compensate for the higher number of calls for the year. A discussion was then held on the 2009 budget, which is still in the works. A total of 48 calls came in the month of September for a record of 312 calls year-to-date. Of the calls in September 33.9% were vehicle related, 14.7% were structure related and 9.9% were brush fires. Discussion was then held on the disposal of old fire hose, with no action taken at this time. There was also a discussion on Ladder 81, which is still in Nebraska for repair, and there was no action taken on the sale of Engine 82, which is in the works to find the best possible way to spend the least amount of money.
