Welcome to Cotuit

This website is the official site for the Cotuit Fire District, in the village of Cotuit which is a part of the town of Barnstable, Massachusetts. We are located about halfway between Hyannis and Falmouth on the Nantucket Sound (south) side of Cape Cod. This site’s purpose is to provide information on the three elected Boards overseeing the Fire Department, the Water Department, and the financial and general governance of the village.

Each Board has its own area of this site – Prudential Committee, Fire, and Water – that presents its own archive of past meeting agendas and minutes, as well as more information about each board including history, personnel, and contact information. As of 2014, we also post audio recordings of most meetings. In 2015, the Prudential Committee voted to post the budget reports. They are available from the link below. You can view a grid that consolidates these meeting minutes by clicking on the board title below.
