This equipment upgrade would provide more protection for our rural areas and inside of our local school. The estimated cost of a siren is $20,000, but a grant award would cover half of that cost. Our department and community would be responsible for the other $10,000. Your feedback is welcome as we work through this process. </p><p>Controlled Burns </p><p>In April, our volunteers completed a prescribed controlled burn for a landowner within our boundaries as part of a public private partnership with the USDA. A donation was received for the department to help cover the costs. If you are interested in this type of activity in the future, please contact us for further details. </p></li><li><p>Our 2015 Membership Roster </p><p>Please contact Aaron Baker at 660-281-7777 with questions or corrections: </p><p>Ahern, Chris &amp; Jeanne Alvarado, Josh Atlanta Saddle Club Augustus, Bret &amp; Micki Auriene, Matthew Bader, Ava Baker, Aaron &amp; Erica Baker, Bob &amp; Cathy Baker, David &amp; Erica Baker, Martha Baker, Robert &amp; Alma Baker, Wade Baker, Wanda Bakke, Pamela Bark, Charlie Barr, Shermann Bartholomew, Patricia Bealmer, Darrel &amp; Sheila Beeson, Wayne Belt, Drew &amp; Becky Belt, Gary &amp; Linda Belt, Wilson &amp; Pat Belt Farms LLC Beske, Bruce Bittick, Robert &amp; Inez Blaise, Terry Blomberg, Chris &amp; Geralyn Boulton, Jane Bowen, Amanda Brown, Patricia Bugard, Sam &amp; Carri Burgess, Calvin &amp; Wanda Carnahan, Jackie &amp; Donna Carriker, Harold &amp; Louise Carter, Richard &amp; Carol Chapin, Ansil &amp; Kate Christophel, Steven &amp; Faith Christy, David Cleaver-Barton, Victoria Clelland, Jim Coleman, Ben &amp; Nancy Dahlquist, John Daniels, Jason Darby, Donald Davis, Dennis Davis, James &amp; Vicki Davis, Larry </p><p>Davis, Lucian &amp; Roberta Davis, Richard Davison, Jack &amp; Phillis Dawson, Robert &amp; Cathy Deeds, Greg &amp; Tabitha Deskin, Robert Dierling, Judy Dille, John Dille, Kim &amp; Nancy Dowell, Gary &amp; Joyce Dunn, Jennifer &amp; Josh Durham, William &amp; Shirley Farmer, Becky Ford, John Forquer, Suzanne &amp; Allen Fountain, Danny Frye, James &amp; Shirley Gaughan, Dan &amp; Lisa Gentner, Martin Gerald &amp; Linda, Swinney Gladhill, Lloyd Glosemeyer, Kenneth Graham, Eugene Graham, Rhoda Green, Lawrence Grillo, Arthur Grim, George &amp; Sue Grubbs, Clifford &amp; Virginia Grubbs, Norma Gunnels, Stephen &amp; Sarah Halley, Matt &amp; Twila Harpster, Delores Harpster, Kiley Harpster, Rodney &amp; Cindi Harrington, Duke &amp; Bev Harrington, Josh &amp; Lori Harvey, Blaine &amp; Judy Hinrichs, Terry &amp; Debbie Hubeney, Gertrude Hull, Edward &amp; Yvonne Jackson, Willadean Janes, Eldon Jett, David &amp; Jennifer Jones, Lyman Jones, Pat &amp; Jerry Kabien Investments, LLC Kemp, Richard &amp; Sharri </p><p>Kerns, Jon &amp; Marisa Klamert, Michael &amp; Chastity Klocke, Dale Klusman, Ralph &amp; Martha Kuhlmann, Marvin Landorf, Scott Lent, Mary Litzinger, Guy Livingston, Deron Long, Dorothy Long, Tanya Lost Eighty LLC Lowenberg, Linda Magruder, Herb Marsh, Richard Martens, George &amp; Vaune McClanahan Farms McEwen, Margaret McEwen, Shawn &amp; Jeremy McLin, Larry &amp; Pam McMichael Heirs McMurry, John &amp; Bonnie McVay, Jesse &amp; Sue Menefee, Jeff Mense, Robert Mettes, John Miller, Brenda Miller, Eugene &amp; Eugene Miller, Justin Missouri Lamb Co.

This means landowners pay dues instead of taxes on everything they own. Earlier this year, we sent 168 prospect letters to non-member landowners within our boundaries that had never been asked to join. The response was incredible. We have added more than 70 new members this year (44% growth), grossing around $3,600 in new income. These are funds we can use for equipment, utilities, etc. In 2014, our membership dues totaled around $7,700; we have increased our budget for dues for next year by almost 50%. Estimated revenue for 2016 is now $18,000 and includes $1,500 quarterly payments from the city of Atlanta. We continue to have a great relationship with the city of Atlanta and appreciate their financial support. Your membership dues are important to us. In the last year, we made our final payment on our newest truck, making the department debt free. We look forward to working to provide even better protection to you and your property in the years to come. </p><p>. </p></li><li><p>Atlanta Volunteer Fire Dept. </p><p> </p><p>PO Box 415 | Atlanta, MO 63530 </p><p>JUNE 26th</p><p> 28th, 2015 </p><p>FOOD, FUN &amp; FREE </p><p>FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT </p><p>full Schedule: </p></li></ul>
