Bill description: HB 550 would establish a process for removing a flood control district commissioner.

Rating: +1

Does it in any way restrict public access to information related to government activity or otherwise compromise government transparency or accountability? Conversely, does it increase public access to information related to government activity or increase government transparency or accountability? 


Idaho’s Flood Control Districts, established under the Department of Water Resources, are to protect the areas around rivers, lakes, dams, and other such features from damage caused by flooding. Each district has a board of commissioners, which is appointed by the director of the Department of Water Resources.

HB 550 would allow the director to remove a commissioner from the board in the event that the commissioner engages in misconduct or fails to perform the duties required of the position. Allowing the director to remove commissioners who have shown they are derelict in their duty to the district would provide a greater level of accountability.
