The Rye Fire Protection District Board of Directors met Monday, August 19. All Board members: Chairman John Schaiberger, Directors Rich Simpson, George McGoff, Wally Rice, and Mike Graber, were present. Chief Steve Bennett and Captain Jim Beach were in attendance as well.

The Board approved a motion that the Board officers remain the same for the next year. John Schaiberger is Chairman, Rich Simpson is Vice-Chair, and Wally Rice is Secretary/Treasurer.

The Board is considering investing some money from the Capital Outlay Account to help increase the funds in that account through interest earnings. Brent Turner gave a brief presentation of options available through COLO Trust. The Board is considering several options, based on a combination of factors including interest rates, liquidity of funds, fees associated with the accounts, ease and timeliness of withdrawals, and ability to set safeguards governing the withdrawal of funds. The Board will study the options they have been given and will address the issue again at the next meeting.

Rye Fire responded to 99 calls in July, 18 of which were fire-related; the remaining 81 were EMS-related. Although this represents a decrease of 9% from 2018, it is 12% higher than the 5-year average of 88 calls.

The educational funding program description document was updated as suggested by the Board and will be submitted to the RFPD attorney for final approval. The information for the 2018 audit has been compiled, and an extension request has been submitted.
