Dr. Bob Beede, DVM - Commissioner, District 1

Dr Beede is the founder and previous partner of Intermountain Pet Hospital before retirement after 47 years as a practicing veterinarian.  Dr. Beede has two Labs, and he enjoys fly fishing, bird hunting, and outdoor photography.  He is currently the Immediate Past President of the Boise State Bronco Athletic Association and is a proud BSU supporter.

Dr. Beede loves the Boise River, along with everything that the river provides for both area residents and local wildlife. In 2011, Dr. Beede became involved as a Commissioner for the Boise River Flood Control District #10, where he presently serves as the Board's Division 1 representative.

The Boise River is the jewel of the Treasure Valley and is vital to each of the individual communities situated alongside the riparian corridor. In addition to being the focus of the Valley, at certain times of the year, the river can also be viewed as a potential threat to valuable property. Dr. Beede demonstrates a commitment to helping the river function as naturally as possible, while still allowing for the annual maintenance that is frequently necessary to help reduce the annual spring flood threat.
