AUGUST 9, 2006
The regular meeting of the Pelican Town Board was called to order by Chairman Bruce Galles. Present: Bruce Galles, Ted Rice, Robert Olson, Suzanne Goerges and Shirley Wallin. Leon Yeager from Mission Fire Dept., Jack and Lillie Johnson.
Minutes of July meeting were reviewed, B. Galles made a motion to approve minutes with a few grammar corrections, seconded by R. Olson, motion carried.
Leon Yeager from Mission Fire Dept. gave a report from the last fire
meeting. Section 10 of our township is serviced by Mission Fire Dept. it
is 3.8 miles to Rickaís so the ISO would be 8. If we have Pequot Lakes
service that area as they now have a satellite station at Breezy Point
it would be 1 mile closer but the ISO with Pequot Lakes Fire Dept. would
still be a 9. It was suggested in the future we contact residents in the
area & ask what they would like, will leave as is for now. L. Yeager
spoke about the deliberators , the way it is recommended they use them
the old ones are not set up that way and the manufacturer is not going
to upgrade the old ones and the cost for new ones will cost $1800.00 a
piece and they have 15 of them.
