LMRFD fire board meeting next TUESDAY in Dolan Springs

Tuesday 5/29/18 1:30 pm at the Dolan Springs chamber.

Lots of stuff going on:

Discussion and action regarding: Acceptance of Resignation for LMRFD Board Member Rick Sherwood; effective June 18, 2018. (Cass)

Rick is resigning?  Why?
I was glad he asked some meaningful questions about the ambulance billing at the last meeting.

I don’t know how you can run an ambulance service if you don’t know how much you get paid for each run.

Can you believe that they don’t have ANY information whatsoever what they get paid for each transport?

According to Gabe, the accountant, the other fire districts don’t ask for that information either.  No wonder they’re all in trouble!


a. Discussion and possible action regarding: Legal Counsel Invoices from December 2017-current that have been received. (Kiffer)

Why is this SECRET????     LMRFD is the cash cow for lawyers like Bill Whittington.

b) Discussion and possible action regarding: Material obtained from LMRFD Legal Counsel re: payroll discrepancies matter. (Cass)

Again, WHY is this secret?

c) Discussion and possible action regarding: Personnel Matter: Fire Chief DeMaio and Administrative Assistant Karen Jackson positions; outside resources and potential cost of outside resources. (Cass)

d) Discussion and possible action regarding: LMRFD Interim Fire Chief Contract and/or Fire Chief Contract; with changes from Board and Fire Chief. (Board)

I understand that personnel matters and certain issues are confidential, but this is really uncalled for.

Don’t the fools who joined LMRFD and pay for this BS have the right to know what’s going on?

I’m just glad I’m not paying for this.

I’ve been extremely busy, but hope to have a little more time in June.

Jay, if you read this, how do I go about filing a formal complaint?

I’m sick and tired of so much money being wasted and not having medical services in Meadview.  Charlotte and Walt have been trying to get a few things done and I appreciate that.  But no matter how often they demand timely notices and info on the web, NOTHING gets done!

I do NOT appreciate wasting $12,000 on painting the Dolan fire station, I’d pay $2k max.  I painted the aluminum siding on my old mobile in 2006 MYSELF and I’m amazed how good that paint still looks.  Well, if you like pink 🙂

Here’s the agenda:

Meeting the needs of Dolan Springs 4/28/18

From the DSCC newsletter:

April 28th a group of local citizens (Bob Waldorf and Debbie Bibi of Bibi’s Talent, Frank Geraci of Mohave Rancho Lumber, Jay Tschudy of Grand Canyon West Art Gallery) want to talk about “Meeting the Needs of Dolan Springs”.  What activities and programs should the community consider addressing and resolving? What improvements are needed for the town and its citizens? The public is encouraged to attend.

Frank is one of the few Dolanites who sometimes shows up for the LMRFD board meetings, don’t know the others.   I’ll try to be there.  Don’t live in Dolan, but nobody in Meadview EVER asks what the community wants.  In fact, just stating what I want (a community, not some stuck up morons running their private country club at MY expense) got me banned from the MCA and ads in the Meadview News were refused for YEARS!

In case you’re new here, the people who run Meadview prohibit video recording COM events to ensure that we can’t publicize and document their constant lies.

I just wish it wasn’t such a long drive to Dolan, so much we could do in their community hall!

Undersheriff Trafecanty, ADOT and Animal Control on 4/14/18 at Dolan Springs DSCC hall

Updated 4/12/18:  From the DSCC newsletter: April 14th Town Hall Meeting at 11 am “So What do You Want to Know?”. Here is your chance to ask questions of Undersheriff Edward Trafecanty who will talk about programs that fall under his domain, including Animal Control; Les Henley, Public Works Engineer will talk about Pierce FerryContinue Reading

Why is LMRFD NOT charging for ambulance runs unless patients are transported?

This is the strangest thing. LMRFD does NOT charge when the EMTs don’t transport the patient. Is that crazy or what? A friend called 911 because he was in terrible pain, but it got better while the EMT assisted him and calmed him down. He had nothing but praises for the EMT. The EMT didn’tContinue Reading
