OLD BUSINESS

Active Shooter Employee Training: The training sessions went well.  If any departments want their offices evaluated, they should contact Sgt. Jeff Bonack.

SAFETY SUGGESTIONS - None

COMMITTEE REPORTS

Traveling Board:  The board was returned from the Highway Dept.

NEW BUSINESS

Health Issues: Kim updated the committee on West Nile and Zika Viruses & Lyme Disease.  The Health Dept. does test dead birds for the West Nile virus. They have found a crow that tested positive in the Fond du Lac area in May. Everyone should be more vigilant to avoid mosquitos/protection against bites. 20% of people bitten by mosquitoes carrying the virus have the potential of having a severe reaction.  We should also be vigilant to prevent tick bites – avoid direct contact, use repellent, and/or find & remove ticks from your body or your pets.

Meeting adjourned 8:45 am  (Tom/Rick K.)

Next meeting:  Wed, July 19, 8:15 am in Room F

Ann Kaiser, Secretary
