Chairman Eckersell called the meeting to order at 2:03p.m. on May 11, 2004. 

A question was asked by an individual: “Can an individual open a funeral establishment with one location and down the street have a garage set up as the preparation room and to house vehicles?” 

Mr. English moved to make a policy based on the Mortician Statues and Rules the Funeral Establishment must all be at a specific address or location and self-contained.  Mr. Gordon seconded the motion and the motion carried. 

Laine Eckersell was congratulated on his re-appointment to the Board. 

The next Mortician meeting is to be changed to July 19-20, 2004.

1.      Invite the Association to the meeting

2.      Invite the Board of Insurance to the meeting


Mr. Eckersell reported the Association working group will not change on the Funeral Directors educational requirements and they are still working on changes to the Certificate of Authority. 

Having no further business before them, the meeting adjourned at 2:23p.m.
