Lincoln Fire District Chief Hiring Procedures Discussed

Last night’s meeting of the Lincoln Parish Fire District No. 1 focused on the procedures and timetables for the hire of a permanent chief for the district.

A September test date for the Fire Chief was discussed, as well as a class description for the position of Chief. Board Chair Richard Aillet said the description was almost complete, with several items left to finalize.

The board also approved guidelines for volunteer live-in arrangements at the stations.

During the Budget and Finance Committee Meeting, the 2013 audit was reviewed. There were no findings.

Discussion of the 2014 budget showed that spending was about $50 thousand above projections, due to some unplanned overtime and spending on maintenance that had been deferred. Revenues were slightly above projections, and it was thought that by year-end, the budget would be close to balance.
