letter to board and CoW members

I sent this email to PRRD board and Committee of the Whole members, asking them not to approve the budget as it is proposed, but instead to approve a budget on the level of 2016, which would permit our fire department to continue to function and improve.

Thursday the PRRD Committee of the Whole meets, and on its agenda is our fire department's proposed budget.

The latest proposal is on page 211 at 

On page 207 is Ryan Thom's four page report.  Here are some items from it:

250hp Yamaha

Hello friends, I have received a call from a marine mechanic friend of mine that has in his possession a 250 Yamaha outboard that he believes belongs to a woman who lives on Lasqueti. The engine was originally worked on by a mechanic named Simon Marnow but that is all my friend knows. He would like to get the engine back to the rightful owner.

Fire Department budget questions

Here is the email I sent to PRRD Emergency Services Manager Ryan Thoms, our regional director Merrick Anderson, and alternate Laurence Fisher. Also are links to the budget information and contact information for PRRD board members (and two current alternates). I'll post responses and further information as I receive it.
