House of the Colony Committee 1930s (20th Century) בית ועד המושבה
The House of the Colony Committee stood here, where the Bank Hapoalim building is today. The house was inaugurated in 1928 in the presence of the national poet Haim Nachman Bialik.
The eclectic building style of the house combined classic and oriental elements. The design of the pointed windows and shutters is particularly noticeable. On the roof was a decorated railing and it was used for the activities of the young people of the colony and for the gymnastics lessons of the pupils of the elementary school. For 30 years, the house served as a center for Hadera’s municipal and cultural activities.
In 1960, the Moshava committee sold the plot for the purpose of building a new house for the municipality. Shortly afterwards, the house was destroyed.

www.maslule.co.il Local Government in Hadera
The first settlement committee was called the "Kollel Committee" in which the representatives of the associations that founded Hadera served. The members were called "licensed" and they set the agenda for the colony. During the Turkish period, the "Mukhtar" committee that served as the residents’ representative vis-à-vis the Turkish government was elected.
In 1984 the committee was first elected, democratically, by a general assembly. The main decisions at that time were in the matters of morbidity (fever), the drying up of the swamps, the ownership of the land and the land disputes with Joshua Hankin and the Arab neighbors as well as, the residence and the receipt of building permits from the Turks.
In 1925, for the first time, relative elections were held for two lists that competed for the 5 seats on the committee - the list of peasants and the list of "union" of the workers and residents.
In 1927 the concept of the General Assembly was abolished and a council of 15 representatives was established. Until 1947, the council was ruled by the Peasants’ Party - the landowners. This year, a revolution took place and the workers became the largest faction in the council.
In 1952, when the population of Hadera numbered 12,000, Hadera was declared a city.
