Description

For all residents of the Todd fire district:

A meeting will be taking place Thursday, October 12, 2017 at 7:00pm at South Fork Baptist Church. At this meeting, the 9 current Board Members and any community members present will discuss the need for an election of a permanent Board before the Annual VFD meeting, always held the first Thursday in May. It is important that residents of the fire district attend this meeting because it will be the time and space for more community input regarding the 5 permanent board positions to be decided. Please note, a vote at this meeting is allowed according to the Todd VFD bylaws, but that does not mean a vote has to take place yet. If you are interested in filling one of the 5 vacant seats permanently, please be prepared to share your interest, credentials, and personal attributes that would make you a good addition to the Board of Directors. Please look for communications about future meetings in the Watauga Democrat, Jefferson Post, Todd’s Calendar, the Mercantile E-newsletter, and in public places like the Todd PO, Mercantile, and the Cook Park message board. We will do our best to communicate as widely as possible so that all residents are aware of meetings and major decisions.

Note: Fire district membership includes all residents, property owners or not. You are welcome to attend and provide input and vote, when applicable. For questions, please contact Volunteer Communications Director, Jaimie McGirt at mcgirtje@gmail.com.

Information on the last community meeting:
A community meeting was held Thursday. Oct. 5 by the Todd Volunteer Fire Dept Board of Directors concerning their recent closure and to hear public comments. At the meeting, a decision was made to expand the Board to include community and fire dept members. Community residents specifically voted to increase the number of Board of Directors from 7 to 9, in hopes to soon seat 5 new Board Members alongside the existing 4 Board Members. Community residents also voted to add 5 “provisional” Board Members to the existing TVFD Board until a permanent board could be voted on. Not all “provisional” Board Members intend to be candidates for permanent Board seats. Full reports of the meeting can be found in the Watauga Democrat and Jefferson Post.
