BOARD of FIRE COMMISSIONERS

FIRE DISTRICT #1

The Board of Fire Commissioners is made up of five elected commissioners. All Fire Districts in the State of New Jersey are governed by statue. Fire District Statues are generally located in N.J.S.A. 40A:14-70 et seq. These statutes give fire districts taxing authority, regulate when and how fire district elections are to be conducted, and regulate their fiscal responsibilities, among other things. The Board of Fire Commissioners serves as the Fire Districts governing body and manages all operations. The length of a Fire Commissioner’s term is three years, and commissioners, as well as approval of the proposed annual budget, is conducted on the third Saturday in February, as mandated by New Jersey Statutes.

The Hazlet Township Board of Fire Commissioners meet the second Wednesday of each month at 7:30pm. Meetings are held at the Hazlet Town Hall located at 1766 Union Ave. in Hazlet.
