South Hadley Fire District No. 2, being its own municipality is operated under the Massachusetts General Laws governing Fire Districts. Our structure is much like a town. The Prudential Committee oversees both the fire and water departments, with the Fire Chief in charge of the fire department and the Board of Water Commissioners along with the Water Superintendent in charge of the water department. The Board of Water Commissioners has the sole responsibility for setting the water rates.
Meetings are held according to MASS General Laws; Annual District Meetings, Annual elections, and budgets are held and or set as for any municipal government. All are open.
