DEZALIA:Alright, always exciting.Thank you Erica.


SADOWSKI:Your welcome.




GARRISON:Good morning.I submitted my monthly report and I also submitted to the board for informational purposes, our Essex County Fire and Ambulance Plan Ė estimate of savings.Weíve been in the plan for thirteen years now and our overall savings to the county as you can see is, $1,535,356 and an average savings to the county per year of $112,815 so it looks like a pretty good savings overall.


PALMER:Again, for the new supervisors this was, at one point all of the fire departments had their own individual policies the county agreed to work with Bob Poitras the broker and we brought all of those fire district in together into a single plan and this is really what the savings has produced over the course of that, since we started in 2010.†† So, this is really savings to the fire departments itís not necessarily savings to the county per say, but ultimately itís savings to the county constituents that would not have been there had we had not done this.So when you hear about the fire and ambulance insurance plan thatís what this is specifically about.


DEZALIA:Did anybody have any questions on that?Anything else Judy?


GARRISON:Thatís all I had this morning.


DEZALIA:Okay, thank you. Well, we donít have Dan here so did Dan have anything he gave you?


GARRISON:He did not give me anything no.


DEZALIA:Okay, anything else to come before this committee?No, alright. Thank you.
