End of July Updates

Lakeview Fire will be participating in the National Night Out scheduled for August 12th from 5 PM to 8PM at City Hall/Station 2 located in Tannehill Preserve. We would love to see you!

If you missed the last meeting, the video is on Facebook. We are still working on options for those not on Facebook including uploading the video to YouTube and podcast.

Staffing remains a priority. Chief Harris is working on recruiting firefighters and volunteers. One possible solution to increase volunteers is to start a volunteer medical response unit. This group would respond to medical calls only. Deputy Chief Bossard is putting a plan together to present at the next meeting.

The dues increase committee will present their report at the August meeting.

We are waiting on the results of two grants, one for turn out gear and one for a new truck. It may be September before we receive an answer. We were fortunate enough to receive a $29,431.00 from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation for new extrication equipment.

Financial information for June 2022:

Checking: 

Beginning balance $157,081.82

Ending balance:$112,869.16 

The expenses for June 2022 were higher than usual due to the purchase of the extrication equipment covered by grant money.

Savings:$42,701.56

The board voted to move a small portion from checking to our reserve fund. 

The 2020 and 2021 financial audit is available on the website under documents.

The 2021 billing cycle is coming to a close. If you have not paid your bill, please pay as soon as possible to avoid fees or collections. The new billing cycle will begin October 1st. 

And last but certainly not least, the deck at  Station 1 is complete! A portion of the deck was covered under a grant from the Tom Bigbee Foundation.
