2022 Fire District Budget & Election Guidance

On September 20, the Division of Local Government Services issued Local Finance Notice 2021-16, which addresses the Calendar Year 2022 fire district budget process. All fire districts must submit their applications through the Financial Automation Submission and Tracking Solution (FAST). Only designated fire district officials may obtain FAST login credentials.
 We would also like to highlight that:

  • Prior to submission, users are required to upload the completed budget document, and all supporting documentation, and other related and annually transmitted forms through FAST. This includes contracts, shared services agreements, and grant agreements.
  • After February 19, 2022, the Fire District election results for fire districts with February elections, or any fire district with capital, levy cap, or restricted fund balance referendums must be reported through the FAST portal using the “Elections” tab within the adopted fire district budget module.

For more information about the CY 2022 fire district elections please visit The Division of Local Government Services Local Finance Notice Guidelines page.
