Chair Nancy Layton called the meeting of the Idyllwild Fire Protection District Finance Committee to order last week, with committee members Chief Patrick Reitz and Calvin Gogerty also present, and apart from approving minutes from the June 6 meeting, the only action item on the agenda was work on the 2014-15 preliminary budget.

But Layton announced that she and Robert Dennis, financial consultant to the board, had not been able to meet so that agenda item would not be addressed.

The next regularly scheduled meeting of the Finance Committee is at 2 p.m. Monday, July 7. The next regularly scheduled meeting of the IFPD Board of Commissioners is at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 8. Both meetings are held in the Idyllwild Fire Station training/conference room.
