Board of Directors


The Tallahassee Fire Protection District (the “District”) is a Special District, which is a type of local government that is defined by, and must abide by, Colorado statutes.  It has a five-member Board which is the general governing body of the District, oversees all aspects of the District, and carries out the business of the District in public meetings.  To qualify as a Director of a special district, a person must be an eligible elector (which is defined as a registered voter of Colorado) and either:
            1.    a resident of the District, or
            2.    the owner of taxable real or personal property situated in the District.
Directors generally serve a term of four years and the terms are staggered to limit the effects of a single election on the composition of the Board.

The Directors are required to elect a Chairperson/President, Treasurer, and Secretary.  Electing a Vice President is at the Board's discretion.  When terms expire or a vacancy occurs, new volunteers are needed to serve on the District Board.  In May 2023, the District will have three terms expiring:  District Chairperson/President, District Secretary, and District Treasurer.  Looking for a challenge that also brings about great rewards?  Then please give some thought to volunteering your time and talent to these important District Board positions.

Do not be scared away if you see position listed as “elected official.”  We are happy to discuss the requirements and share our own experiences.  None of our Board members are “politicians.”  We are government in its most basic form -- local citizens helping to manage a service for their local community. 

Do not get bogged down by the details.  We are here to train you to be successful in any Board position.  Training lasts as long as you need it -- there is no expiration date.  Transitions are run smoothly and with the utmost respect.

All TFPD Board Meetings are open to the public.  Feel free to join us at any time in order to experience a meeting for yourself.  We look forward to meeting you!
