Chief Billmire stated that Policy Manual updates have been sent out and he is waiting for feedback from the Commissioners. Commissioner Binder did not get one because his email was down so we will give him a printed copy.
Chief Billmire informed the Commissioners that he had met with ICRMP last week and gave them the quote we received from VFIS. He asked them to review it and let us know what they could do for us. We have not heard back from them, so the Chief recommended that we go with VFIS. Commissioner Kirk made a motion that we accept VFIS without the umbrella coverage. This motion was seconded and passed unanimously.
