Mayor Norm Steadman of Weippe Celebrates 50 Years of Public Service

Posted By Justin Ruen, Thursday, November 16, 2017

Idaho’s longest serving Mayor, Norm Steadman of Weippe, is reaching a milestone of 50 years of continuous service to his community.  A celebration is planned for Saturday, November 25 at the Weippe Community Hall at 1 p.m. to commemorate Mayor Steadman’s outstanding legacy of public service (see link to flyer below).

Steadman was appointed Mayor in 1968 when his brother Mayor Walter Steadman moved to the nearby community of Headquarters.  “I didn’t think it was going to be a lifetime appointment,” Steadman said in a recent article in the Lewiston Tribune

Norm worked as an engineer for the U.S. Forest Service and is one of the foremost experts on the Lewis and Clark Expedition’s journey through Idaho.

Weippe is in Clearwater County and had a population of approximately 800 in 1980, with sawmills providing a strong base for the local economy.  In recent decades, timber production has declined and mills have become more efficient, leading to fewer timber industry jobs.  No other industry has moved in to replace these jobs and Weippe’s population is now around 400.

Congratulations to Mayor Steadman on achieving this great milestone of service to the citizens of Weippe!
