Representative to East Troy Fire District Needed

After 15 years as the Spring Prairie representative to the East Troy Area Emergency Services District Board, Paul Miller has decided to step down and hand the responsibility of the position over to another Town of Spring Prairie resident. The District meets, on average, once per month and oversees the operation of the East Troy Fire and Rescue Services. The board is comprised of one representative each from the Towns of East Troy, Lafayette, and Spring Prairie, as well as the Village of East Troy.

Miller recommends that his successor have a strong background in accounting or finance, but this is not required. It would also be helpful to have an understanding of the basic operation of fire and rescue services, but, again, this is not required.

If you are a resident of the Town of Spring Prairie and interested in this volunteer position, please contact the Town at 262-642-7477. Be prepared to leave a message with your name and contact information. You can also contact the Town by emailing the Clerk at
