Sub-districts and Commissioners

Sub-district boundaries

The Hauser Lake Fire Protection District is a taxing district within Kootenai County, Idaho. It is divided into three political sub-districts, simply identified as sub-district 1, 2, or 3. The Fire District’s Board of Commissioners includes three elected officials, one from each of those three areas.

See the map posted on this page. The map is also available to view at the fire station. Sub-districts were most recently assessed in 2016 to achieve three areas with similar populations and geographic area.

  • Sub-district 1 includes the area to the north and west.
  • Sub-district 2 is the L-shaped area on the east.
  • Sub-district 3 is the block farthest south, along highway 53.

Current Fire District Commissioners

Fire District Commissioners are elected by Hauser Lake voters district-wide, but each must reside within his or her respective sub-district.

Commissioners are elected to four-year terms. The current Hauser Lake Fire Protection District Board of Commissioners includes:

  • Wes Michael, Sub-district 1, current term 2016-2019
  • Myron Richardson, Sub-district 2, current term 2018-2021
  • Lisa Wendle, Board President, Sub-district 3, current term 2018-2019
