    exceed $2,000.00

BOARD AND STAFF MEMBERS' REPORTS: Director Poggi informed the Board that he met with District 5 Supervisor Randy Fletcher as a private citizen to tell him he was upset about the public works delay (noted in last month's minutes). Supervisor Fletcher would like someone to go to the County and explain where the delays and issues occurred in the permitting process. Also, Chief Webb has issues with the new construction process, which he would like included in that meeting. Supervisor Fletcher informed Mr. Poggi that the County has no intention of taking over emergency dispatch services from CalFire. Director Biggs informed the Board of the next JPA meeting to be held Wednesday, June 28th at 7pm in Camptonville.
