NOTICE TO CITIZENS REGARDING UPCOMING OPEN COMMISSIONER POSITION
To the citizens of Clark County Fire District 6:
At the April 2, 2019 Board of Fire Commissioners meeting, Commissioner Dean Bloemke announced his intent to retire from service at the conclusion of his elected term of office on December 31, 2019. With this announcement from Commissioner Bloemke, there will not be an incumbent running for reelection in the 2019 Primary or General election, so the field is completely open.
The affairs of the District are managed by a Board of three Fire Commissioners who each serve an elected six-year term. The terms are staggered so every two years a Commissioner’s term is expiring. Commissioners must live within the boundaries of Clark County Fire District 6.
As of January 1, 2019, Commissioners are compensated $128 per day or portion thereof, not to exceed $12,288 annually, for time spent in attendance at official meetings of the board or in performance of other services or duties on behalf of the District. More information is available at https://app.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=52.14.010.
