The Lacey Fire District is looking for a new fire commissioner.

Board chair Judy Wilson said the fire district will accept letters of interest until February 15.  The number of applicants will determine the next move.  At the least, interviews and background checks will be done.

Interested individuals must live in the Lacey Fire District which also includes the City of Lacey.   The person selected must run for election in the fall for the remainder of the term which is four years.

More information can be obtained at the district’s website.

The Lacey Fire District encompasses 70 square miles and serves 90,000 people.  The assessed valuation of the district is $8.3 billion.   The district operates on a $17 million dollar budget with 101 employees and around 30 volunteers.
