The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners is seeking applications for two Technical members (four-year term) and one Alternate Member (one-year term) to serve on the Citrus County Water & Wastewater Authority. This board provides for regulation of private, for-profit water, bulk water and wastewater utilities within the unincorporated areas of Citrus County. The terms for the two Technical Member positions will be for four years, beginning on February 1, 2018 and ending on January 31, 2022. The term for the Alternate Member position will be for one year, begin on February 1, 2018 and will end on January 31, 2019. Applicants are required to be Citrus County residents and registered to vote in Citrus County.
The authority consists of five members; three members are technical members and two members are lay members. The lay member positions are appointed based on individual civic pride and integrity. Experience in any area of relevant utility service and management, rate making, utility regulation or other endeavors is required for Technical Members, but applicants for the alternate member position are not required to have the same area of expertise as technical members. The Water & Wastewater Authority meets quarterly at 1:00 pm. on the first Monday of February, May, August and November at the Lecanto Government Building in Lecanto.
Applications will be accepted until November 28, 2017.
