Fairgrove Village Council Minutes

Special Council Meeting

March 23, 2016


A special meeting of the Fairgrove Village Council was called at 8:00 p.m. by President Wassa to discuss and approve the 2015/2016 Village of Fairgrove budget.


PRESENT:  T. Wassa, B. Phelps, C. Phelps

EMPLOYEES:  H. Stark, Fire Chief Young

PUBLIC:  No members of the public were present.


President Wassa reviewed the budget presented at the Public Budget Hearing. 


Chief Young requested a clarification of the costs included in the presented salary budget figure and asked how this compares to the budget request by the Fire Department. President Wassa clarified that that the salary line includes all Fire Department pay as well as administration costs provided by the clerk. The clerk confirmed the current salary structure for the Fire Department is as follows:

Fire Fighter per hour pay                                $8.50

Pay per meeting                                             $5.00

Pay per Training                                             $5.00

Pay to complete fire run paperwork               $5.00


Chief Young requested the pay for training to be included from $5.00 per instance to $10.00

After board discussion and initial examination of the training hour trends, the council determined that the current budget amount in the FD budget should be sufficient to the cover the requested wage increase should it be passed at the next Regular Council meeting. The clerk will add this issue to the next council meeting agenda.
