Board Meeting Cancelation

Chesterfield, MO- The Open Meeting of the Monarch Fire Protection District Board of Directors scheduled for October 13 at Noon has been canceled.  This meeting coincides with the funeral of St. Louis County Police Officer Blake Snyder, who was recently killed in the line of duty.  The Board wishes to respect the importance of the funeral.  Additionally all Monarch command personnel will be involved in coordinating the participation of the fire service in the funeral service, the processional and the recessional and thus will not be available to attend the Board Meeting.  Lastly, this affords members of the Board, who are able to attend the funeral service, to do so.  The Board expresses its sincere condolences to fallen Officer Snyder’s family and fellow St. Louis County Police Officers at this difficult time.

The results of the forensic audit of expenses of Chief Marsonette will be released and discussed at the next Open Meeting to be held on October 26 at 6:00 p.m.
