Intergovernmental Water Board has opening

TIGARD - The Intergovernmental Water Board, which represents more than 60,000 water customers in Durham, King City, two-thirds of Tigard and unincorporated Washington County, is seeking a volunteer to fill the at-large position.

The board makes recommendations on drinking water issues and is currently focused on developing and evaluating future water sources.

The board consists of five members, with four of them representing the four jurisdictions and the fifth one serving as an at-large member. The at-large member is selected by a majority vote of the other members.

The at-large member will serve a two-year term and must be available for IWB meetings held on the second Wednesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. Attendance at other meetings may also be required.

The term of Bill Scheiderich, who has served as the board's at-large member, expired Dec. 31, and board members decided at their Jan. 9 meeting to open up the position to new applicants.

A complete position description is available at www.tigard-or.gov/volunteer.
