Valley Fire – The district estimates that calls were up 9.9 percent overall in 2008. There have been issues with damage at fire stations due to weather and water. During the heaviest snows, the district purchased three paramedic sleds that can be pulled behind snowmobiles in case of road closures. An executive session was held to discuss disciplinary action of an employee. The next meeting will be held on Jan. 20 because of the Martin Luther King holiday.
