There are five members on the Board of Water Commissioners who volunteer to serve five-year overlapping terms. Each year a board member is appointed or re-appointed to the Commission by the Mayor and that appointment is approved by the City Council. The sole responsibility of the Board of Water Commissioners is the operation of the community's water system. The Water Commission functions independently from other City of Medford operations.
Board meetings, which are open to the public, are held twice monthly, on the first and third Wednesdays unless otherwise scheduled. The meetings are generally held in the City of Medford's Lausmann Annex, Room 151/157, at approximately 12:15 p.m. unless otherwise stated (+/-; shall begin at the conclusion of the study session). There is an opportunity for public comment at every meeting.
Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Executive Orders from the Office of the Governor require that the governing body of a public agency hold public meetings and hearings in compliance with social distancing and face covering requirements. Our meetings are currently being conducted by virtual means in compliance with the Governorís Orders; details on how to participate are provided on each agenda.
Meeting agendas are posted on the website when available, and meeting minutes are posted following approval. Please contact the Administration office at 541-774-2440 if you would like more information about board meetings.
