  3. The new medic should be delivered in September.

ROAD/CEMETERY SUPERINTENDENT: 

  1. Kevin requested vacation days on Fridays, July 19th and July 26th and Thursday, August 8th.  He will make sure that the cemetery work will be covered.  The Trustees approved these days off.
  2. Someone took all of the old sign posts, signs and scrap iron from under the lean-to.  Kevin filed a police report.  No insurance report was filed because the value would be about the same as our deductible.

HEARING OF VISITORS:

FISCAL OFFICER’S REPORT:

  1. A second garnishment has been received from the Circleville Court for a firefighter who just finished paying off a previous garnishment.
  2. MaryAnn presented the 2014 budget.  She pointed out the two areas of significant increase which are the Fire Fund Transfers Out to pay notes on the Engine and two medics and the $25000.00 which will need to be transferred from the General Fund to the Cemetery Fund as the Cemetery Fund is nearly depleted.
