2.  Firefighters Pension-Required Membership (Mark Taylor)

     Letter from FF Pension was presented regarding Mark Taylor.  It is the opinion

Of the FF  board that Mr. Taylor should be a member of Jones Pension (As he is Chief) and that he would have to drop his OKC membership.  Mr. Taylor is not listed on Jones roster as he is a volunteer and he is also an employed firefighter elsewhere (OKC)  This was approved when he became chief but it was just per phone calls.
