CYFD considers new board member, leave buyback at meeting Tuesday

The Central Yavapai Fire District Board of Directors will consider appointing a new board member, the amount of leave employees can buy back upon retirement, and approve fire code amendments and fees during their meeting Tuesday, June 18.

The meeting starts at 2 p.m. at the Central Yavapai Fire District Training Center at 9601 E. Valley Road in Prescott Valley.

The new board member would replace John Range, former board chairman, who resigned citing health issues in early May.

CYFD's Wage and Benefit Committee met with employees and recommends that 100 percent of sick and vacation pay be deposited tax-exempt into the employee's post employee health plan upon employee's retirement.

In executive sessions that are not open to the public, the board will interview board member candidates and three candidates for the fire code board of appeals and discuss emergency communications issues and training center drainage issues.

The board may decide to take action or not to take action on those issues in sessions immediately afterward that are open to the public.

According to the minutes of the March 18 meeting, Nies updated the board about an email he sent to Prescott public safety leadership including Prescott Fire Chief Dan Fraijo about a CYFD radio failure in late February in downtown Prescott.

At that time, CYFD's made suggestions to fix the issue in which CYFD frequencies are very close to Prescott Police frequencies. Since then, CYFD has looked into options to use other radio towers in the area to improve CYFD reception in downtown Prescott.

In other business, the board will:

• Consider approving an intergovernmental agreement with the City of Prescott for use of the Glassford Hill Communications Infrastructure.

• Consider approving an intergovernmental agreement with the Greater Yavapai Purchasing Consortium for operating supplies.

• Listen to a presentation on bond debt service financing options.

• Hear a Prescott Valley Town Council report.
