N.I.E.S.A. report was given by Diederich.  There was a question about a charge for $884.00 from the Tax Tribunal.  Griffes believes it has something to do with one of the buildings in the industrial park having their assessment lowered.  Griffes also believes the Webberville DDA might be the ones responsible for the refund since they capture the millage for N.I.E.S.A.  Ream will call the County Treasurer and find out.  No response yet to the letter that was sent to the Webberville DDA regarding the Revenue Sharing Agreement With the Village.  If no response is received by the next meeting, N.I.E.S.A. will take action.  The Board approved Don Drent as Deputy Chief.  Chief Yanz said ISO rating will be lowered due to quick response times and additional equipment.  N.I.E.S.A. will purchase additional blankets that are used to smoother solar panel and car fires.
