The Cronomer Valley Fire District is governed by a board of 5 Fire Commissioners that are publicly elected by registered voters within the Fire District. They are bound by the laws of New York State to assess properties within the District for the purpose of providing firefighting and emergency response equipment, training, apparatus and buildings while keeping within approved annual budgets. They hold public meetings monthly on the Second Tuesday of each Month.
One Commissioner is elected each year to serve a term of 5 years. The senior Commissioner becomes the Chairman at their re-organization meeting held in January of each year. Commissioners are not paid similar to the volunteer firefighters. The District does elect and pay a Treasurer to administer fiscal responsibilities, as well as an appointed Secretary to provide clerical work.
District residents are urged to get involved with Fire District affairs and attend meetings. Our Fire Chiefs are elected by the Fire Department and dualy sworn in as Fire District Officers with the Authority Having Jurisdiction. Please contact the Commissioners or any Chief Officer if you have a question about your fire protection needs.
