Central Mat-Su No. 130
Under MSB Code 5.15, the CMSFD has an appointed board of supervisors to assist in the operation of the service area. The board of supervisors is composed of five persons who are qualified voters residing within the service area, appointed by the mayor and approved by the assembly. Each supervisor serves a term of three years and may serve additional terms. The terms of members are staggered so that as nearly as possible an equal number of vacancies occur each year on a board. Vacancies occurring on a board of supervisors are filled for terms remaining by the mayor, subject to assembly confirmation. The board selects from among its members a presiding officer to preside at meetings and adopt rules of procedure.
The board meets on the 2nd Monday of each month at 7 p.m. in the Central Public Safety Building, Station 6-1. They may meet at other times as its members determine. A majority of the authorized members of the board constitutes a quorum for transaction of business. In the absence of a quorum for the transaction of business, any number less than a quorum may recess a meeting to a later time and date. Boards of supervisors, after public hearing, recommend an annual budget to the manager; and make recommendations to the manager and the assembly on building programs, equipment acquisition and disposal, administrative policies and procedures, contracts, maintenance needs, and other matters as the manager or the assembly may request.
In addition to those duties described above, boards of supervisors of fire service areas also make recommendations to the manager and assembly on the appointment and supervision of volunteer fire chiefs appointed to administer the fire service area; and submit an annual efficiency report on volunteer fire chiefs to the manager.
