The Mid-Michigan Community Fire Control Board was established in 1981 through collaborative efforts of the City of St. Louis, Bethany Township, Pine River Township (all in Gratiot County), and Jasper Township (Midland County). It is governed by a five member board representing all four municipalities. The Fire Board makes decisions that pertain to the Fire District.
The Fire Board meets the 2nd Tuesday of February, May, August and November at 5:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers. Fire Board meetings are open to the public.
