LACEY CITY COUNCIL RECRUITMENT FOR ADVISORY MEMBERS ON THE FIRE DISTRICT 3 BOARD OF FIRE COMMISSIONERS
LACEY, WA, May 6, 2010: The Lacey City Council is currently seeking two advisory members to serve on the Board of Fire Commissioners as representatives for the City of Lacey. Applicants must be residents of the City of Lacey.
On April 27, 2010, the voters approved the annexation of the City of Lacey into Fire District 3. The next step in the process is for the City of Lacey to appoint two members to serve in a non-voting, advisory capacity on the Board of Fire Commissioners.
This fall, the voters will be asked to approve a proposal to formally increase the number of elected Fire Commissioners from three to five. The two advisory members will serve until membership on the Board of Fire Commissioners is expanded to five elected fire commissioners. It is anticipated that the two advisory members selected by the Lacey City Council will be willing to run for elected office if voters approve the increase in the number of Fire Commissioners.
Lacey Fire District 3 provides fire, emergency medical and related services within a 70 square mile service area that includes the City of Lacey. The Fire District is governed by a three-member Board of Fire Commissioners who serve staggered six-year terms.
The Board of Fire Commissioners is responsible for establishing policy, setting levies, developing and adopting the annual budget, reviewing and approving contracts, and appointing a fire chief. The Board meets the first and third Thursdays of each month at 5:30 p.m. at Station 31.
The City of Lacey is committed to ensuring varied and diverse representation on all of its Boards and Commissions. Interested Lacey residents are encouraged to apply. In order to be considered, contact the City Clerk’s office at 360.491.3214, or firstname.lastname@example.org to receive an application; or download the application at www.ci.lacey.wa.us. Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 19, 2010.
