The Dent County Fire Protection District Board of Directors held their regularly scheduled monthly meeting on Tuesday November 3rd. After a roll call and approval of the consent agenda, Chief Brad Nash presented the second draft of the 2010 budget. A discussion was held and it was decided the budget will only be able to reflect the major areas, and revisions will be made and presented at the next meeting. Reimbursements were reviewed and it was decided that all is ready for the checks to be written at the December meeting. Nash also reported that there is no word on the FEMA Grant at this time. It was reported that FEMA has only one person writing checks so it will be a while before any money is received for the May storm. Additionally, the firehouse software is installed and maps and data is being updated. An implementation date of December 1st has been proposed at this time. The Board then went into closed session.
