There is a tentative agreement with the Hilltop Guild to donate land for the station near the Kelly House and Bunce School Road. The auxiliary station would be named after Marge McCullough in honor of her support and service. The Hilltop Guild must satisfy some BoulderCounty requirements in order to be able to subdivide the property. Motion that Bob Snell meet with Boulder Land Use and inform the Board of their requirements for the Guild to donate and what AFPD will be required to do to build. Bob will email the Board with the requirements within a week. If the Board believes the requirements are too stringent, AFPD attorney will be contacted for an opinion. Motion passed.
Property Protection Trade with Lefthand Fire District
Trade is done and AFPD will be receiving a letter.
AFPD Guideline Review
Proposed new guidelines are being reviewed. After the review is done the Guidelines will be presented to the Board for approval. Time frame for presentation to the Board is the fall.
Main Station Parking Lot
BoulderCounty will lay down material for the main station parking lot for the cost of material and truck to smooth out the lot. Approximate cost will be $1,500 - $2,000. This will probably be scheduled in July.
Chief Mike is requesting the lease-purchase of two new pumper/tanker trucks and one new brush truck to begin replacing the aging fleet. Rosenbauer quoted two pumper/tanker trucks for approximately $497,000. A brush truck would cost about $140,000.
Bob Snell presented the financal information. Next years income will be reduced by $13,000 because of falling property values. If AFPD lease-purchased the trucks there would be a shortfall of $4,000 per year. The budget could be cut somewhere else to pay for the lease purchase.
Gary McGuire presented a proposal of how AFPD can afford new vehicles in a timely matter without asking for more money from taxpayers. The budget would need to be reduced by $21,000 a year (approximately 10%). Two pumper/tanker trucks could be purchased now, one with cash, one lease-purchased, then the brush truck in five years. Then purchase trucks every five years, causing the main fleet not to fall below the age of 20 years old, as desired.
Jeff Kolen feels the truck quote from Rosenbauer is not detailed enough to purchase the trucks. Bob Snell would like to know why there are not competitive bids.
As Chief Mike was not present, Acting Chief Leo Touzjian will communicate to Chief Mike that the Board would like the pumper/tanker truck specs on the quote in more detail, a competitive bid (or reason why there cannot be a competitive bid), the Chief’s input on the vehicle equipment five year replacement plan with budget trimming at the next Board meeting, rather than going ahead with purchasing less than Chief Mike has requested without his input.
