The Nederland Fire Protection District is looking for a new director to fill a vacancy on their board of directors. Vice President Patrick Richardson resigned, effective June 20th, from the board as he will be moving outside the boundaries of the District.
The board of directors consists of 5 members who represent the interests of the taxpayers of the district. The board is responsible for filing and managing an annual budget of approximately $1m currently, filing an annual audit and any other statutory notices, and ensuring that the District provides Fire, Emergency Medical and Rescue services within the district boundaries within the terms of the special district service plan. The board employs the Fire Chief who is responsible for the day-to-day management of the District.
You do not need any Fire or EMS experience to serve on the board.
