About the Fire District Board of Directors
Fire districts operate under the oversight of an elected Board of Directors. The Board is made up of District residents. Board members are elected by residents within the District, and each Board member serves a six-year term.
The Board oversees the financial aspects of the District. Any new expenditures for the District must receive approval from the Board. Members also handle the appointment of Fire Chiefs and other leadership positions within the District.
Board of Director meetings are held each week (on Tuesday). Minutes from the meeting are available to the public to ensure full transparency in accordance with Missouri’s Sunshine Law. In addition, all District expenditures approved by the Board are public records.
