Commissioners Adopt County Seal

The Kootenai County Commissioners are pleased to announce the adoption of an official county seal in conjunction with the county’s sesquicentennial in 2014. In conducting research for the county’s sesquicentennial, County Commissioners Todd Tondee, Dan Green, and Jai Nelson discovered that there were various county logos and emblems but could not verify if any one of them had ever been officially adopted. Idaho Statute 31-821 grants the power and duty to the Board of Commissioners to adopt a seal. Subsequently, a contest was held to design a county seal. More than 16 entries were submitted and a design by Jamie Kay Marble, North Idaho College Graphic Design Major, was selected and adopted at today’s business meeting/Kootenai County commissioners.
