The duty of the Board is to ensure that the District is being operated in a responsible and sustainable manner. They review all aspects of the District business and operations and meet twice a month, generally on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, to make major decisions on behalf of the ratepayers who elected them. They are tasked with a very important role and take their duties very seriously.


The Annual General Meeting was held on Wednesday, June 10, 2020, at 7:00 pm.  

The term of office for Trustee, Allen Kirschner, expired in 2020.  Notices seeking nominations for this position were advertised in the Kelowna Capital News, the Daily Courier and posted on the BMID website and at the BMID office. A Nomination form was subsequently received for Allen Kirschner and no others. An election was not necessary and Mr. Kirschner was appointed by acclamation for a further 3-year term.

Trustee Elections are called annually to fill the rotating three (3) year terms for the Trustees.
