Library- Spring Fling was a success. The library made $2704.73.

Fire Department- Larson gave update. Just over $69,000 in checkbook. FD received quotes for redoing the concrete in front of the fire hall. Wurtzberger quoted $18,500 and Isaacson’s quoted $20,000. After discussion FD decided to go with Isaacson’s due to the fact the FD will be able to supply manpower when needed and cut down on labor costs. FD will pay for half out of the Hanska Community Fire Assoc Fund and the other half will come from the Relief Assoc general fund. FD is going to get quotes for repainting the exterior of the fire Hall. FD is still working with vendors on pricing for SCBA’s. approx. price around $150,000.
