Several possible staffing options have been presented to the Direc- tors of the Cloverdale Fire District by Fire Chief Jack Rosevear in con- sidering how to replace Captain Ron Barney who recently resigned his post as Fire Prevention Officer to accept a position in Tiberon. At the September board meet- ing the Directors received the Chief's report outlining options. The Board met for a study ses- sion Oct. 7 but deferred making any decision until the regular meeting Oct. 13. This meeting will be held in the SciaLni Building, 138 S Cloverdale Blvd. at 7 p.m. Chief Rosevear has recom- mended an option which would be a combination of volunteer/ part time staffing and an Amador plan staffing arrangement with the California Division of Forestry (CDF) station located in Clover- dale. This option would involve filling Barney's open shifts of 10 per month with volunteer staffing from June 1-Oct. 31 and continue CDF staffing from Nov. I to May 1. Normally CDF has a crew and engine on line from June I through Oct. 31. and at the end of the fire season this staffing ends. By con- tracting with CDF the staff and equipment would continue to be made available to the Fire District from Nov. 1 to May 1. A contract with the CDF from November through May would assure two firemen would be avail- able 24 hours to respond to a call. Chief Rosevear believes this is a very important for safety reasons. Two would be a minimum and often there could be as many as three on hand. This higher level of staffing would guarantee no wait- ing for the first engine to get out the door, the Chief explained. He told the Reveille that his staff- ing recommendations did not im- ply that the District intended nev- er to fill Barney's position full time. He said his main objective was to have more people available to an- swer calls at any given time. Those favoring filling the posi- tion at once pointed out to the Plmme turn to Imc pm Groundbreaking ceremony held at Del Webb development Del Webb held its ground breaking ceremony Sept. 30. The ceremo- ny was held in two tents placed between the four model homes that have been built, and the old Moulton Winery. The spot is where the future 5,800 square foot recreation facility will be built starting in late october. John Murray, Vice President in charge of Del Wehb's Northern California Operations, officiated the event. Boy Scout Troop 411 presented the colors, and Grace Lutheran Church Pastor Paul Stark gave an invocation. Murray and Director of Special Projects Jack Davidson thanked the City Council and City Staff for their hard work in helping make the development a reality. City Manager Bob Perrault also spoke, remarking that Cloverdale has always been a garden spot, but is now just beginning to get recognition as such. He was pleased that the community is pulling itself together to move Cloverdale forward. He thanked City Staff for all their hard work concerning the project. Cloverdale Mayor Tom Sink told those gathered that he was proud that the project had only taken seven months to approve. He said the city listened to what the public wanted, and fast tracked the project accordingly. Those who played key parts in bringing the development to life were given ceremonial hammers signifying the groundbreaking, and everyone drank a toast to the project and community partnership.
