The Commissioners of the OIHCD would like to thank the more than 100 members of the community who actively participated in the October 28th Town Hall meeting. It was standing room only and we appreciated everyone’s understanding of the unexpected last minute change in venue. A big thank you to Chief Williams, Jim Schuh and those at OIFR for their support, as well as Dimitri Stankevich from Orcas Center for getting the audio setup.
The Town Hall presentation is available by clicking on the 2019 Meeting Materials Tab and searching by meeting date. You’ll also find important information from the Board’s November 5th meeting where the 2020 Budget and 2020 Levy were adopted.
There is lots of activity underway and regular updates will be posted on the District website. If you provided your email at the Town Hall you will now begin receiving the Board updates. If you haven’t already done so be sure to go the Welcome page and register your email.
We are committed to staying highly engaged with the community as we continue our work and look forward to your continued interest and input.
