Howard Hansen – Memorandum of Understanding between Morgan County Fire Department and the Division of Forestry.
The state will be using one of the county facilities and is requesting to provide goods in kind (shovels, and other equipment) rather than the rental fee.  Dave Rich, the fire chief, is recommending this proposal be accepted.  Chairman Creager commented that this arrangement will be beneficial to all since the state has better buying power than the county and can sometimes get better prices on equipment.
