REPORT OF COMMITTEES:
HazMat: Rich Fisher reported that the committee to look at the truck at Clearfield 911 building went on May 25. He posed the question to the Association to obtain the truck or not. Mike Porada said that since we did not have the money from the county yet and the housing issue is unsettled, the association should hold off.
