Just a reminder. The monthly Emergency Services Authority meeting will be taking place tomorrow:

Date: Thursday, 11/30
Time: 2:00pm
Place: Peaine Twp. Hall

I would encourage anyone who is interested in the betterment of our island emergency services to attend.
The item of discussion to remove Brad Grassmick from the ESA Board will most likely be on the agenda.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to support your community.

If health care and emergency services on Beaver Island are going to improve, it's going to take dedicated leadership by a medical professional in the person of Brad Grassmick. Now is the time to show that support.
Thank you the reminder Sheri.

ESA meeting would not be discussing Brad that would be the township meeting if it were to be discussed. So It would not be on the agenda, but still always a good idea to go to meeting. Very Happy

I agree, always a good idea to go to a meeting. If anyone has the agenda posted for the November 30th ESA meeting, please share as I cannot find it on my Peaine Township's website.

Thanks,
Pam

Joe, thanks for the ESA agenda. I was hopeful that the public could find it on our publicly funded taxpayer township site. It was a significant township investment to switch over to this web provider years ago.

I agree that attending the meeting is important. Why was the meeting and agenda not properly posted on the Peaine Township website? Oversight, deliberate or leadership incompetence? Inquiring mind's of taxpayers might want to know if their tax dollars are being properly utilized for public good.

Right on Heidi. The Emerald City only had one man behind the curtain bamboozling the people. The Emerald Isle has several. Time to call in the flying monkeys. Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green

Probably the most interesting aspect was the work done by Kitty, Jim, and Cody from EMS, addressing the Fire Departments salaries to make it more attractive to attend trainings and increase participation in Fire Department services. In addition, the ESA board will be posting agendas, minutes, and such on both township websites. The Steinbach family was again very generous with a donation of $140,000 for fire equipment which will include a new Ford 350 with additional equipment for fighting wildfires. Cody reported that EMS has had 108 runs thus far this year with 44 air transports. Definitely a record number of runs for our EMS Department!

There were many who attended but all were respectful and everyone well-behaved. Thanks to all who took their precious time to attend the meeting.
