Board of Community Guardians was created to deal with complicated issues of guardianship for those residents of Kootenai County who have no relative or significant other interested in becoming their guardian when they have legally been deemed incompetent. This board functions as the guardian of last resort.

The board acts in an advisory capacity to the Kootenai County Board of Commissioners. Members are appointed by the County Commissioners and serve 4-year terms.


The Governing Board shall be the Board of County Commissioners of Kootenai County, Idaho.
