CDID#1 is governed by a Board of Supervisors who takes action on items presented at regular public meetings and is politically responsible for District activities. A separate Advisory Committee provides a forum for additional input from the community.
Due to the public health emergency and the restrictions ordered by the Governor of the State of Washington prohibiting in-person public meetings to control the spread of COVID-19, until further notice as of March 31, 2020 meetings will be conducted by teleconference and recorded. Before each meeting is called to order, participants will state their name and position. Please contact the District Office for details to participate remotely.
The board of supervisors is elected by eligible voters with the District and serve six year overlapping terms with one position standing for election every two years. Elections are held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in February in each even numbered year. Cowlitz County conducts candidate filings and elections on behalf of the District. For more information about upcoming elections, visit the Cowlitz County Elections Office.
In order to be eligible to run or vote for a board position, individuals must have been registered to vote in the State of Washington for not less than 30 days before the election, and own land within the District for not less than 30 days before the election.
