PUBLIC COMMENT: None
MICHIGAN GAS UTILITIES – Nick Krzeminski, Manager thanked Chief Motylinski for applying for the First Responders Grant offered by Michigan Gas. Michigan Gas likes to give away $10,000 every year and not many departments fill out the application. This year Dundee Fire Department was a recipient of this grant and received $2,500. This grant must be used for equipment, training or a major purchase for the department. Because we are a mutual aid department with LMR, Ida and Summerfield Townships, Chief Motylinski purchased a combustible gas indicator with some of the grant funds for each of these departments. Mr. Krzeminski presented an indicator to each of the fire chiefs from the respective departments and thanked them all for what they do for us.
