Fire Protection District No. 17 (Bald Hills) - Fire Commissioner, Position No. 3

Fire Protection Districts & Regional Fire Authorities (RFA) - Fire protection districts and RFA’s are formed to provide fire prevention services, fire suppression, emergency medical services, and the protection of life and property in the county. Administrative authority for the districts results from decisions made by a board of elected fire commissioners. The board of fire commissioners has the authority to hire and appoint employees as well as administer all aspects of the district. The board is required to hold regular monthly meetings. Fire protection districts levy regular property taxes to provide services to the public. Additionally, with voter approval, the board may issue bonds and make excess levies for specific purposes. The voters elect commissioners to staggered six-year terms. The nonpartisan commissioners receive no regular salary, but may choose to receive nominal compensation for attending meetings.

All positions are nonpartisan.

  Only voters residing within the Bald Hills Fire District will vote on this position.
Statements are written by the candidates, who are solely responsible for the contents therein.
