The group discussed the following issues:
• The draft Agreement was reviewed. The text of the Agreement for each town is identical, with the exception of each town's annual monetary contribution. The consensus of the towns was to modify the draft Agreement as follows:
Add language that would tie the percentage increase of the monetary contribution to the State imposed levy limit, with an exception not to exceed 3%.
Clarify that the 2% inspection dues received by each municipality on behalf of the Mt. Calvary Fire Department shall be paid to the Mt. Calvary Fire Department.
Revised the termination paragraph to state that both parties have the right to re-negotiate.
• The Department's 2010 Budget was briefly discussed. The expense for the St. Cloud Fire Department 1st Response Aid Agreement is included in the 2010 Budget. The Department's fund raising revenue is segregated into their Auxiliary Account. The funds are used for projects, operation and maintenance of the Park; and for Department expenses and equipment.
• The concept of the rental agreement has been agreed upon by the parties.
The meeting was declared adjourned at 7:58 p.m.
