Here, a week later, are those ad- ditional items. --Heard Comanche County Hospital administrator Nancy Zimmerman thank the council for the use of the Veterans' Build- ing for a recent hazardous mate- rials incident training session there. --Heard Mrs. Zimmerman ask the council to put in an additional water meter at the hospital for a- small building to be used for showers in case of a hazardous materials incident. She also asked if there would be a prob- lem with the ambulance coming in to that building through a closed alley there.
