Ray Toutloff said the elder van at Vermilion is 14 years old.  It is deteriorating.  It never had rustproofing and is rusted underneath.  Kevin Strong had said the vehicle is unsafe.  Kim Greiner and Ray Toutloff will work on getting quotes for a new vehicle and also leasing and bring to the next RTC meeting.

 

Tara Geshick said she asked Chris Holm, Herb Nelson, and Greg Myers if they could do the technical reports for the lead program.  They all declined.  Chris didn’t know enough about the lead program, Herb wasn’t familiar with EPA programs, and Greg couldn’t fit it in his schedule.  Tara would like to have Kevin Koski do the reports.
