The Hayden Lake Watershed Improvement District Board is the governing body of the district. It consists of three directors who have been elected to their positions and serve voluntarily, receiving no monetary payment for their work and effort. All directors own land within the district. Moreover, they are qualified through training or experience that is relevant to their role and the mission of the WID. The regular term of office of each director is four years. The Board will announce elections by posting at the Hayden Lake City Hall, in the newspaper, and through social media.
The board members make a conscious effort to make decisions that are representative of the whole Hayden Lake Watershed system, and each of it’s influencing parts. Hayden Lake has many bays, each with unique attributes, qualities, and water quality factors. Consequently, members seek to make decisions that mutually benefit all parts of Hayden Lake’s Watershed.
