Public comment: Doug Hyland and Ron Vanderwerf were here from the Village of Muir to ask what our Covid money was going towards. If we have unused money, they were wondering if we would split it between the villages for their project needs. The board agreed to discuss this when we get the money and the rules on how to spend it. They also wanted to discuss having a fireman come to a meeting at least once a quarter to let them know what is going on with the fire department and what their needs are. The board said we would try and make that happen.

The board was under the impression they would need help until around February, so the board wanted to write up a contract to be compensated for the assistance we were giving. After our discussion there was no need to write up a contract.
