Further Discussion of the Fire Fighter’s contracts; concern over the lack of involvement of the Prudential Committee. Most changes will not affect current employees of the fire dept, only new-hires. Union has been cooperative; feels it is more important to increase the size of the dept. Raises will be 0-1-2 over the next three years. Concerns about the on-going litigation are voiced.
Further discussion on the new District Office location; the Fire Station is not an option. Fire and Water districts approached by The Cape and Vineyard Electric Cooperative concerning the potential of solar installations on district property; potential source of significant income. Prudential Committee would accept or reject based on the recommendation of the water commissioner. New website is operational. New accounting software was discussed once again. Public comments include potentially using the Waldorf school as temporary District Office space (not an option, entire school in use), requests for a list of who has health care through the district, discussion of dependents on dental plans, still looking for a third estimate on the work require on Freedom Hall as the first two seemed high – work continues on Freedom Hall in the mean time, legal billing from previous district meetings, as well as ambulance billing being up – a transfer from the reserve account will probably be required.
