Two of the three Hauser Lake Fire Protection District commissioners are up for election this fall and one, Lisa Wendle, will not be running again. Lisa is from the southernmost sub-district in Hauser Lake and Wes Michael, also up for election, is from the eastern sub-district. Please see the map on our page titled “Sub-Districts and Commissioners.”
Candidates for the Board of Commissioners must live in the respective sub-district, though elections are district-wide. Commissioners serve four-year terms.
Candidate packets are available from the Kootenai County website at kc.gov or by request from the fire chief or clerk. You can also request the packet by email from admin [at] hauserfire.org.
The first and most important deadline is September 5 at 5 pm. This is the date and time by which candidates must file their first forms with the local fire district clerk. Only the original forms can be accepted, not photocopies, and they must be turned in in-person, not by fax or electronic means.
