At the conclusion of the meeting, Lt. Randy White of the Fire and Rescue Department made a brief presentation in response to a request from the committee at its previous meeting about fire station nicknames or monikers. He distributed copies of a memo regarding the nicknames and stated that the firefighters at each station pay the cost of producing signs, patches, truck logos, etc., not the City. He also noted that station monikers must be approved by a division chief in the department before they can be used.
