Commissioners Meetings

Board of Fire Commissioners meetings regularly start at 7:00 p.m. on the second and fourth Mondays of each month and are held in the district’s Paul T. Nichol Headquarters Station (26642 Miller Bay Road NE near Kingston). The public is always encouraged to attend commissioners’ meetings.

Special Meetings and Public Hearings

Sometimes additional meetings — special meetings — are called to conduct business that doesn’t fit into the regular meeting schedule. For example, special meetings may be called for time-sensitive matters or joint meetings with other government entities.  Unless announced at the beginning of the year with the remainder of the district’s regular meetings, these additional meetings require a public announcement of the agenda at least 24-hours before the planned special meeting.

Public hearings, usually scheduled to deal with budgetary matters, may take place in a regular or special meeting of the Board of Fire Commissioners. Regardless, notice of a public hearing must be posted here and at the district’s headquarters fire station at least ten days in advance of the planned public hearing.

No special meetings or public hearings have been held to date in 2020.
