Members of the Spearfish Rural Fire Protection District Board are continuing their work toward the organization’s development, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The board has broken itself into groups which are working on legal matters and bylaws and governance. While the working groups will not make final decisions on their own, their discussions will be used to assist the whole board in providing information to the group’s trustees.
In addition to determining each board member’s strengths and weaknesses, information is being gathered to help the board determine what services the fire protection district’s constituents expect. The board’s goal is to develop a plan that will include strategies for firefighting, cost estimates, and more.
