About the Board
Kittitas Reclamation District is operated by the landowners of the District for their mutual benefit. The District is divided into five director divisions with one landowner elected to represent each division. Those five landowners, chosen by the other qualified electors, form the KRD Board of Directors. Click here for a director division map (warning: this is a large file, 272K).
To vote in elections, either as a candidate or as an elector, a person must be at least eighteen years old; a citizen of the United States; a resident of the state of Washington; and someone who holds title or evidence of title to assessable land in the District.
The term of office for a director is three years. A directors term starts on the first Tuesday of the January following the election. Regular monthly meetings of the Board of Directors are held at the District Office on the first Tuesday of each month at 1:00 p.m. Special meetings may be called at any time, as circumstances dictate.
Directors are responsible for managing and conducting all the business and affairs of the district. They receive no salary, but are compensated for attending meetings or when otherwise doing District business, and reimbursed for necessary expenses such as travel, lodging, food, etc., when on District business.
To run for Director, a nominating petition, signed by at least ten qualified electors of the director division for which the candidate is running, must be filed with the Secretary of the District by 5:00 p.m. on the first Monday in November. Elections are held on the second Tuesday in December.
