Auditors had nothing but praise for city administration in its handling of finances for this past fiscal year. Rita Carpenter of Westbrook & Co., P.C. presented the audit report to Richmond City Council on March 9, 2021 during their regular meeting. The audit covered the last fiscal year ending September 30, 2020. Carpenter reported nothing was found out of order in the City’s books.
Carpenter thanked the City’s Finance Director, Rebecca Hoeflicker, CPA, City Administrator Tonya Willim, Mayor Mike Wright and City staff.

"We wouldn’t be able to facilitate such a great audit were it not for all the hard work Rebecca and staff expend pulling all the information needed together,” said Willim. “We feel good about the process we have in place and continue to move forward. This audit reinforces all the hard work performed by City staff and Council.”

We want to thank the Richmond Fire District for this valuable tool.

The Richmond Fire department recently received a Gator utility vehicle from Rural Fire to be used for outside fires. It provides a great tool for firefighters to go places where pickups can’t. The Gator will be equipped with a 65 gallon water / foam tank, a pump and 100 feet of 1 inch hose on an electric reel. In addition the vehicle can be used for scheduled fire hydrant flushing. It’s great to see people work together for the safety of our community. Thanks Rural Fire!

Richmond Fire Department is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA®) — the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week for more than 90 years —to promote this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!” The campaign works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.

According to NFPA, cooking is the leading cause of home fires and home fire injuries in the United States. Almost half (44%) of reported home fires started in the kitchen. Two-thirds (66%) of home cooking fires start with the ignition of food or other cooking materials.

Richmond Fire Department wants to share the following safety tips to keep you from having a cooking related fire:
• Never leave cooking food unattended. Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling or broiling. If you have to leave, even for a short time, turn off the stove.
• If you are simmering, baking, roasting, or boiling food, check it regularly, remain in the home while food is cooking, and use a timer to remind you that you’re cooking.
• You have to be alert when cooking. You won’t be alert if you are sleepy, have taken medicine or drugs, or consumed alcohol that makes you drowsy.
• Always keep an oven mitt and pan lid nearby when you’re cooking. If a small grease fire starts, slide the lid over the pan to smother the flame. Turn off the burner, and leave the pan covered until it is completely cool.
• Have a “kid-free zone” of at least 3 feet around the stove and areas where hot food or drink is prepared or carried.

This Week Around Town....

If you see fire fighters at a fire hydrant and water running.... they are flushing hydrants! Hydrant flushing is the quick release of water from fire hydrants. It's a controlled procedure that is vital to the general maintenance of the City's water distribution system. It ensures adequate water flow is available to fire fighters, residents and businesses. Thank you Richmond Fire for all you do!!!!

Remember - if you may have a little air in the line or cloudy water. Just let it run a bit and it will clear up!!
