Emergency Services
Steve Moody and T.J. Rockenbach, emergency services personnel, commended the law enforcement personnel, EMS and Fire Departments for the job that they did the previous weekend with all of the vehicle accidents and fires in Stafford County. Moody informed the board that a few fires were suspicious in nature, perhaps intentionally set. The public is being asked to watch for strange vehicles in strange places, and call in any abnormal activities to help stop the fires from being set.
The EMS/Fire Department bay project at the old KDOT building was discussed. The intent of the $25,000 Ina Maye Toland bequeath to the department was to be used for the fire department.

Resolution Approved
Resolution 2011-R-6, A Resolution Directing “Found Money” to a Specific Fund, was approved.
