The Fire District election is routinely overlooked by Eastchester residents, as less than 4 percent of eligible voters turnout to vote. The approved 2014 budget for The Eastchester Fire District is $16.7M and directly impacts your tax assessment. This election should be taken just as seriously as any Town Election or School Board Election for these board members manage and administer a budget that is larger than the individual town budgets of Bronxville or Tuckahoe.
The Eastchester Board of Fire Commissioners election will take place on December 10, 2013 to appoint a member of the Eastchester Board of Fire Commissioners for a term of five (5) years. The Eastchester Fire District is a separate and autonomous unit of government that serves Eastchester, Bronxville, as well as Tuckahoe. It is governed by a Board of (5) five Fire Commissioners who are responsible for general administration; the appointment of department personnel, physician, attorney, and secretary; and the preparation and adoption of the annual Fire District budget after a public hearing. While this budget appears in the town-at-large budget, the Eastchester Town Board is not authorized to alter it in any way.
