MINUTES OF THE MID-MICHIGAN COMMUNITY FIRE BOARD

St. Louis, Michigan
January 7, 2015
Special Meeting

A Special Meeting of the Mid-Michigan Community Fire Board was called to order by Chair Kevin Beeson at 5:30 p.m., on Wednesday, January 7, 2015.

Members Present: Chair Kevin Beeson, Vice Chair Kurt Giles, Don Long, Dan Sagle, Bobbie Marr.

Members Absent: None

Others in Attendance: Fire Chief Apps, Assistant Fire Chief Dick Prestage, Bill Coty, Bethany Township Treasurer Darryl Fowler

Public Comment: None

Business.

Purpose of the Special Meeting is to discuss financing of the new hall, awarding a contract, and future of the existing building.

To date grants have been received from four foundations totaling $210,000.

The Herbert H & Grace A Dow Foundation $140,000

Rollin M Gerstacker Foundation 40,000

The Charles J Strosacker Foundation 20,000

The Gratiot County Community Foundation 10,000

Leaving $623,000 needed in additional member contributions to cover the estimated project costs. Using the average fire runs from a period of 2002 to 2013 (12 years), added Member Contributions would be as follows:

St. Louis $195,497

Pine River 161,482

Jasper 143,165

Bethany 122,856

JBS had made additional proposals for substitutions or additions from the base contract request. Chair Beeson described those options and there was discussion on pros and cons of each. Noting that the financing plan does include $22,000 of contingency and we are anticipating being reasonably under budget for this fiscal year so items being discussed should not require any addition to the already computed member contributions.

Moved by member Giles, supported by member Long, to approve base construction contract with JBS Contracting, Inc. in the amount of $1,099,553 plus amount needed for the performance bond that is estimated at approximately $11,000.

Ayes: Giles, Long, Sagle, Marr, Beeson

Nays: None

Absent: None

Motion Carried

Moved by member Sagle, supported by member Beeson, to ask for the additions of the three phase electrical hookup and to add radiant floor heat to the entire building for costs totaling approximately $7,000. All Ayes carried the motion.

Moved by member Marr, supported by member Sagle, to ratify the financing plan and make additional member contributions payable in full by July 15, 2015, allowing each unit to determine the payment plan suitable for their respective budget periods. All Ayes carried the motion.

There was discussion of the Fire Boards contribution to demolition of the current hall. The City has supplemented the operations of the Fire Department beyond the member contribution for years and, if there is going to be demolition costs associated with the building, the Fire Board should share in that liability. Current space occupied by the Fire Department is approximately 36% of the building.

Motion by member Sagle, support by member Beeson to table the discussion pending actual conclusion by the City to demo. All ayes carried the motion.

Other Business

There was discussion that this would be a good time, since the address is changing and various branding logos will need to be changed, to also consider the actual name of the Fire Department. Mid-Michigan Community Fire Department is a mouthful and has not really anchored us geographically or in notoriety. Most people reference as St. Louis Fire Department which makes it sound like it is a department of the City. Want everyone to inquire of their respective boards a name that would be acceptable and convey a broader ownership. Parting suggestion was “St. Louis Fire District”.

Chief Apps thanked the board for the efforts put towards the project and especially thanked Chair Beeson for all the work he did in applying for the foundation grants.

Being no other business or public comment, motion by member Giles, support by member Long, to adjourn. All Ayes carried the motion.

The meeting adjourned at 6:20 p.m.

Bobbie Jo Marr, Secretary

St. Louis, Michigan
July 14, 2015
Special Meeting

A Special Meeting of the Mid-Michigan Community Fire Board was called to order by Chair Kevin Beeson at 5:30 p.m., on Tuesday, July 14, 2015.

Members Present: Chair Kevin Beeson, Vice Chair Kurt Giles, Dan Sagle, Bobbie Marr.

Members Absent: Don Long

Others in Attendance: Fire Chief Apps, Assistant Fire Chief Dick Prestage

Public Comment: None

Business.

Purpose of the Special Meeting is to discuss progress of the new hall construction and attend any such related business.

Pay applications through #3 have been received. The proposed change order that was discussed at the last meeting was rejected as it did not conform to what we requested or what was done. We have not yet received the final.

Chair Beeson and Chief Apps updated everyone on the progress to date. Appears we are still on target for a mid to late September occupation.

Discussed signage. Basic parking and other required signage is included in the contract. We did not ask for any identifying signs. Looking at some preliminary options of styles determined that Chair Beeson would seek some specific quotes from the mid-range of price types, trying to stay at or under $5,000. Need something large enough to include all the owner entities and still be readable. We will also need to eventually address signage on the Mill Street side of the building as related to making it clear that it is a drive and not a continuation of Mill Street.

Contribute to Mill St. Improvement

Chair Beeson discussed the deplorable condition of Mill St. which will be the trucks return approach. He approached the City as to any planned improvements of that block, of which there are none at this time or near future. While a complete repave/resurface improvement would cost well over $100,000, other options were considered to mill off existing top layer and replace that, with preliminary estimates just under $20,000. Other cost savings may be made by taking advantage of various contractors already in the area to get those costs down some more.

Motion by member Sagle, supported by Chair Beeson, that the Fire Department contribute to fund half of the Mill St improvement, with a cap of $7,500.

Ayes: Sagle, Beeson, Marr, Giles

Nays: None

Absent: Long

Motion passed.

Name (DBA) for the Fire Department

Discussed DBA suggestions. Chief Apps spoke in favor of “St. Louis Area Fire Department”, citing that the majority of our service area has a St. Louis postal address and is in the St. Louis School District so people are already tied to the community in that way. Additions of the word “Rescue” were also suggested but believe that it put us in a position that we may have to change if rescue services were not part of what we do at some future point. For Example we have “DIVE” on some of our vehicles and have not been certified to perform DIVE rescue/retrievals in many years.

Motion by member Sagle, support by member Marr, to establish the DBA as “St. Louis Area Fire Department”. All ayes carried the motion.

Other

Chief Apps discussed grant application activity. Grants are in process for various equipment items and he has become aware of some opportunities from WalMart and Meijer that may result in getting some start up supplies for the new hall.

Member Giles reported on issues with FIBER connection that was previously proposed. The vendor has retired and moved out of the country so the City is in process of seeking a new vendor for the fiber connections that need to be rerouted for both the City's new building and the fire hall.

Member Giles also reported that there was discussion of Hydrant use and tanker fills at the recent city council meeting. There has never been a charge in place for such but with the rising cost of water due to hooking into Alma's system this may become something to be addressed in the future.

Being no other business or public comment, motion by member Sagle, support by member Beeson, to adjourn. All Ayes carried the motion.

The meeting adjourned at 6:55 p.m.
