Executive Board of the Brownsburg Fire Territory

Through the Restated Interlocal Cooperation Agreement • September 13, 2002 ("the Interlocal"), Brown Township, Lincoln Township, and the Town of Brownsburg (the "Participating Units") entered into agreement to establish The Brownsburg Fire Territory (BFT).

Under the interlocal, the Participating Units established an Executive Board consisting of the executive of each of the Participating Units.  The individual serving on the Executive Board must either be the Executive of the Participating Unit, or the Executive may appoint a representative to the Executive Board, which appointee must be a member of the legislative body of the Participating Unit.  The terms follow each representatives term with their legislative body.

The position of Executive Board Chairman rotates on an annual calendar year basis among the representatives.

The position of Territory Secretary is appointed at the first meeting of each calendar year.
