The District began with five Managers on the Board that were appointed by the state and served a one-year term. After that time, they were reappointed by the Becker County Commissioners. Many managers have been appointed to multiple terms. In 1988, the number of managers was expanded from five to seven.
Below is a table listing all those who have served on the Board of Mangers.
