Public comments. Steve Vodicka representing the Fire & Rescue presented to the Board the purchase of a new gurney that is self-loading. He reported that during the day with the short staff they have it has been very difficult to load patients. This year already they have had half the calls they had in 2017 altogether. The new gurney would cost between $43,000 - $55,000 depending on the service contract and options.  They will do some fund raisers and seek funding from grants and donations during the year and see what they can raise. 

Ed Goff presented to the Board building a duplex here in town on property that is for sale.  The Board didn’t see a problem with it and went over the setbacks but will want to look at the plans if property is purchased.
