Thurston County Storm and Surface Water Utility seeks volunteers for advisory board
OLYMPIA – The Thurston County Storm and Surface Water Utility is seeking volunteers to serve on its citizen advisory board. Seven positions are open: four voting positions for residents who live within the utility rate boundary, and three non-voting positions for residents who live outside the boundary.
Advisory board members are appointed by county commissioners. The positions are open only to residents who live in unincorporated Thurston County , meaning outside of city limits.
The Thurston County Storm and Surface Water Utility is a ratepayer-financed program that works to curb problems caused by stormwater runoff and high ground water levels, including flooding, pollution and erosion. The advisory board meets every-other-month and makes recommendations to staff and Thurston County commissioners on issues such as construction plans, rates, budgets, annual work programs, and policy proposals.
