RADIO MAINTENANCE CONTRACT
Jeff Alexander, Sublette Communications, was present to review the radio contract. Since there have been additional radios added and the old base station radio is still being maintained he would like to renew with no changes. He also discussed the progress of the base station radio. Mr. Alexander will be interfacing the new system and re-programming the radios. He will contact the EMS groups to set up a time to complete the re-programming. The board decided no changes were necessary to the existing contract which automatically renewed July 1, 2003.
The Marbleton-Big Piney Clinic submitted a proposal of $7,548 from Dave Norris Construction to re-do the concrete and crack seal the pavement. The board would like to get a proposal from HK Construction and another if possible before approving. Garry Eiden will make contacts to see if others are interested. He will also obtain specifications from the clinic. This item is tabled until Board Members can obtain more information for the next meeting.
Mary Lynn Worl reported that she and Bill Barney researched how the temperature was impacting the equipment and occupants of the clinics. The inside temperatures reached the high 80s and 90s in each clinic. It was determined air conditioning would be useful for both clinics leaving the Marbleton Clinic more marketable if the district vacates it and the Pinedale Clinic installation should be conducive to expansion. Jerry Jensen motioned to advertise for estimates for installing air conditioning in the clinics. Contractors should contact the office for detailed information. Motion seconded by Garry Eiden and carried unanimously.
EMT POSITION APPLICATIONS
The board retired into executive session with Wil Gay and Cori Laster to discuss personnel issues and conduct interviews with the applicants for the EMT position at 8:15 p.m.
Walt Bousman called the meeting back to order at 9:35 p.m. stating no action was taken on the personnel issue. He thanked the applicants for submitting an application.

Mary Lynn Worl will be available as a back-up.
A letter is to be sent to all applicants to thank them for their application and inform them the district will keep it on record to be contacted if there is an opening.
A metal backed, vinyl covered sign for the Pinedale Ambulance Barn has been chosen. Wil Gay indicated Bev Walker is obtaining a bid from a Casper company and Belveal's here in town. It was noted by Jerry Jensen that this was approved in the prior budget year and indicated that from this point forward there will be a time limit on budgeted items.
Kris Bacheller presented the name of Rachelle Transtrum as approved by Pinedale EMS and asked that she be approved as an employee retroactive to Aug. 1, 2003, which was her date of training completion. Two other applicants have been approved to begin training. Two others are in the process for approval or denial. Jerry Jensen motioned to accept Rachelle Transtrum as an employee of the District retroactive to Aug. 1. Motion was seconded by Mary Lynn Worl and carried unanimously.
The board reminded the EMS services there should be no more than one ride-along on the ambulances.
BEC TRAINING REQUEST
Aimee Binning of Pinedale EMS requested additional professional development funds to attend a Basic course at the Teton Science School. She would like to become an EMT-Basic in one month vice 5 months. PEMS already approved this within their group. There is uncertainty that Big Piney will be able to have a Basic class they have requested for January 2004. It was determined she may use her arbitrary $600 allotted for trauma conferences and any monies that the EMS service as a whole will donate toward the $2,400 cost. Jauna McGinnis is to make final calculations at the end of the fiscal year to determine if the cost exceeded the allotment and donation.
Jessica Covell, an EMT who utilizes the district's health insurance program, has requested to have her health insurance paid by the district until she can return to work and begin to pay it back. Mary Lynn Worl motioned to have the district pay the insurance as needed for the next four months then revisit it at that time. Motion died for lack of a second. Jerry Jensen motioned to pay the insurance on a month-to-month basis with a progress report. The motion was seconded by Garry Eiden and carried unanimously.
Jauna McGinnis requested to make direct deposit mandatory by all employees. The board decided to send a letter to encourage all employees to participate in the direct deposit program.
Garry Eiden motioned to have all donations to remain with the EMS service as long as they have the 501(c)(3) designation. The motion was seconded by Mary Lynn Worl and carried unanimously.
Garry Eiden motioned to designate Mary Lynn Worl as a representative of the board to gain membership in the National Rural Health Association. The motion was seconded by Jerry Jensen and carried unanimously.
This item was tabled until the next meeting.
This item was tabled until the current CD matures in January.
Garry Eiden transported the Big Piney Ambulance to Salt Lake City, Utah, for repairs. He requested a donation receipt for this assistance. Jauna McGinnis will produce this receipt after he provides her with the value of the service.
BANKING RESOLUTION/SIGNATURE CARDS
Mary Lynn Worl motioned to ratify the corporate banking resolution with the Bank of Pinedale for the newly opened CD. The motion was seconded by Jerry Jensen and carried unanimously.
The board signed the signature cards.
Katie Kreiger was instructed to obtain a bid to finish the trailer.
The board received the information/proposal from Davis Partnership out of Denver, Colo. They will take the next month to review it. The board would like to explore potential grants/funding for the feasibility study and health care needs in this county. Also, the board stated they did not want to give the misconception that all they are looking at is a hospital. Rather a hospital is an option and that they are mainly looking at the clinics needs and if there is a need for a hospital. If the study were to indicate a hospital was feasible, then it would need to go through a hospital board process. The information obtained from the State by way of contacts through William Belveal indicated that the feasibility study grant was for existing hospitals applying for the Critical Access Hospital designation from the federal government. Jauna McGinnis will do some research for available grants pertinent to the district situation.
POLICY AND PROCEDURES MEETING
The board will resume the policy and procedure meetings after the September regular meeting.
Garry Eiden motioned to pay the bills as presented. The motion was seconded by Jerry Jensen and carried unanimously authorizing vouchers for payroll and vendors numbered 2927 through 3010 and DD3225-201 through DD3239-879 and EFT3226-1 through EFT3240-1 totaling $811,439.28.
Without any further business, Garry Eiden motioned to adjourn the meeting. The motion was seconded by Jerry Jensen and carried unanimously. Meeting adjourned 10:47 p.m.
Respectfully submitted this 8th day of September, 2003.
