A publicly elected Board of Directors governs the fire district. Regular board meetings occur each month on the second Thursday of the month beginning at 7:00 PM located at the administration office at 6934 Soquel Drive.
Meetings are open to the public and public attendance is strongly encouraged. If you wish to attend a meeting, call us at 831-685-6690 during business hours to confirm that the meeting date has not changed (which is a rare occurrence).
We will provide advance copies of board meeting agendas and all meeting support materials upon request. We post meeting agendas one week in advance at all District fire stations and at the Aptos and La Selva public libraries. Current meeting agendas and prior meeting minutes are available below.
The Board of Directors is responsible for setting the policies that are implemented by the staff, leading the district by expressing its vision and values, and by inspiring and empowering district employees to work together to create an effective and positive work environment that adheres to the highest standards of conduct.
The Board faces many challenges each year including setting the department budget, oversight of the Fire Chief and operations, and addressing fire hazard and life-safety issues.
