Serve on the Board
haNorth Metro Fire is guided by an elected board of directors consisting of five members. Each board member typically serves a four-year term and is limited to three consecutive board terms. However, the District is transitioning to a new election cycle. During this transition period, elections will occur on May 5, 2020, and May 3, 2022 for three-year terms. Beginning in 2023, board elections will be held every two years in May in odd-numbered years for four-year terms.
Directors are required to attend monthly board meetings at the District’s Headquarters (101 Spader Way, Broomfield) and occasional study sessions as needed. Directors are also encouraged to attend community events hosted by the District as able. Directors are compensated by the District with a stipend for the meetings they attend.
In order to serve on North Metro Fire’s board of directors, you must fulfill one of the following requirements. You must be:
- A resident of the fire district or area to be included in the District for at least 30 days
- The owner (or spouse/civil union partner of owner) of taxable real or personal property situated within the boundaries of the District
- A person who is obligated to pay taxes under a contract to purchase taxable property within the District
North Metro Fire has seven candidates running to fill three board of director positions starting May 2020. Board members will serve a three-year term following the election on May 5.
For the convenience of the eligible electors, there will be two polling locations. Social distancing precautions will be taken for those wishing to vote in person. All voters must wear a face mask before entering the building.
