King County Flood Control District approves reorganization

The King County Flood Control District completed its annual reorganization with the reappointment of Supervisor Reagan Dunn as chair of the district’s Board of Supervisors.

“Many communities in King County are greatly impacted by flooding and in turn aided by the work of the Flood Control District,” said Dunn in a statement. “I am very grateful for the continued vote of confidence from my colleagues and look forward to working closely with impacted communities to find sustainable solutions to flooding issues throughout the King County.”

At the board’s March 3 meeting, a new vice chair was unanimously approved with the appointment of supervisor Larry Gossett.

“Flooding knows no jurisdictional boundaries,” said Gossett in a statement. “Urban flooding can be as much of an issue as flooding in rural King County. This is why I am honored to serve as the vice chair of the King County Flood District.”

Supervisors also appointed two new members to the Flood Control District Executive Committee, which is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the Flood District and develops policy recommendations for consideration by the full Board. Supervisors Pete von Reichbauer and Dave Upthegrove will join Dunn, Gossett and Supervisor Kathy Lambert on the Executive Committee.
