Board of Supervisors

The District is governed by a five-member Board of Supervisors.  Board Members are elected by the landowners within the protected area for a term of 5 years.  Each landowner is given a number of votes based on the aggregate maintenance assessment of their properties.  Elections are held every February at the annual Land Owners’ Meeting.  One supervisor is elected every year. 

The Board meets once per month at the North Kansas City Public Library.  Meetings are generally schedule for the second Thursday of every month and begin at 12:30 pm.  Meetings are open to the public.


Living and Doing Business behind a Levee

Flood Season (April 1 through July 1)

Because of the snowmelt in the Upper Missouri River Basin and Spring rainfall, April, May and June are months that are most favorable for flooding conditions on the Missouri River.  The North Kansas City Levee Unit protects portions of North Kansas City and Kansas City, Missouri from these occasional highwater events. 

Flash flooding along the Hillside Levee (which runs from North Kansas City Hospital, past Macken Park, and the Kansas City, Missouri water treatment plant) can occur at almost anytime of the year.  The greatest risk is from severe thunderstorms that occur between March and November.  These storms produce intense rainfall that falls on both sides of the levee, and shallow flooding has been known to occur inside of the levee.

To minimize the risk from flooding, the levee system was designed to pass the 0.2 percent annual chance of occurrence (500-year) flood event in the Missouri River, and the District strives to maintain the system to the highest standards.  Those living within the protected area should understand that a risk of flooding, while greatly reduced, is never entirely eliminated.  For this reason, the District encourages everyone who lives or works within the protected area to understand the risks to property and personal safety should flooding ever occur.  For that purpose, we have posted the following resources:
