Our Commissioners

All Commissioners 2012 crop

North City Water District (formerly Shoreline Water District) is governed by a 3-member, non partisan, voter-elected Board of Commissioners. This Board holds the District’s General Manager responsible for planning, organizing, directing and controlling the day to day operations, business administration, and regulatory compliance functions of the District. In addition, the Board is responsible for determining District policy, which is adopted through resolution.

Besides District Board meetings, the Commissioners also take part in the Seattle System Operating Board, Washington Association of Sewer and Water Districts, Shoreline Chamber of Commerce and the North City Business Association. Members of the Board also regularly attend the City Council meetings for both the City of Lake Forest Park and the City of Shoreline.

Regular Board meetings are held the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month at 3:00 p.m. at the District Offices.
