Item 1)              Meeting Call To Order:
 
A) Roll Call:   Present:  Biggs, Birney, Gravelle, Kattuah  Absent:  Kinkle (excused)
 
Item 2)              Public Communications:  None
 
   Item 3)        Discuss purchase of a surplus fire engine
 
A)    Minutes Chief Webb made a presentation to request permission to complete an application to California OES to purchase a surplus engine for approximately $55,000—fully equipped other than radios.  Said engine only has a 3-person cab, so does not fit into Cal OES’s mission.  It was noted that there are no SCBA’s.  It was previously used in urban search and rescue, so also has additional equipment, including a rope supply.  Chief DeSena said the engine would be rentable by CalFire.  Director Gravelle questioned if this purchase would take away funds from other needs and asked if we have enough volunteers to utilize it? 
 
Director Birney made a motion to proceed with the application process and allocate $60,000 ($55,000 vehicle purchase + license, misc fees) pending approval of the application by Cal OES to purchase the new engine and hold off on the purchase of a utility truck at this time.                                  Second:   Gravelle
