Fort Bidwell Volunteer Fire Department

Grand Jury Responses

The Fort Bidwell Fire Protection District and the Fort Bidwell Volunteer Fire Department are subject to review by the Modoc County Grand Jury as are all local government entities.

At the time of our response to the 2007-2008 Grand Jury, we did not know about California Election Code 10515 which requires that the County Board of Supervisors appoint district commissioners if the number of persons declaring candidacy is less than or equal the number of positions to be filled. The positions are not to be put on the ballot unless 10% of the district or 50 voters have petitioned to do so.
