Results from the Community vote to Amend the current Bylaws
Per Judges Orders we were required to give 10 days notice to the Fairview Fire District of the upcoming vote to amend our Bylaws. We were required to provide each Fairview Fire Tax payer with a ballot, giving the member an opportunity to vote "For" or "Against" the adoption of the new Bylaws. The voting Period was held for 10 consecutive days from 7am-7pm at our Main Station. After the voting period ended at 7pm, April 3, 2017 , the Board of Directors were required to conduct a public meeting beginning at 7:30pm only for the purpose of counting the votes. At 7:30 pm the ballot box was unlocked and the ballots were counted. The Board of Directors were required to announce the results before the meeting adjourned.
The results of the vote to amend the current Bylaws is as follows:
423- "For" amending the Bylaws
5- "Against" amending the Bylaws
6- Invalid Ballots (Ballots did not have a "For" or "Against" vote)
By order of the Judge
" If a majority of the ballots cast approve the adoption of the proposed ByLaws, the proposed Bylaws shall be adopted, and the current Bylaws shall be replaced completely."
After counting the ballots, the majority voted in favor of adopting the proposed Bylaws.
After counting the votes and confirming that the majority voted in favor of the proposed Bylaws, the Board of Directors voted unanimously to adopt the proposed Bylaws.
