The Board of Directors is responsible for setting the goals and direction of the District, approving the annual budget, and appointing the Chief and Assistant Chief.
The five members of the Board of Directors are elected by residents of the District, and serve four year terms. Elections are held in even years, with two Directors being elected in one year and three two years later.
The SLFPD budget operates on a calendar year. The Board approves the budget for the following year in November. The approved budget is sent to the State Department of Local Affairs and posted in local newspapers.
The monthly Board meetings, which are open
to the public, are typically held at 7:00 p.m. on the third Tuesday
of each month at Station 2. The proposed agenda, actual meeting
time and place are posted on the bulletin board outside Station
2 no less than 24 hours before the meeting.

The Chief and Assistant Chief are appointed
by the Board every three years. These officers
may serve up to two consecutive three-year terms.
