Winston-Dillard Water District Position 4

Special districts in Oregon are formed to govern specific resources. Examples are people’s utility districts, library districts, sewer districts, irrigation districts, ports and cemetery districts. Some districts get revenue only from taxes. Others, such as water districts, get revenue from ratepayers. Others may combine the two sources. Each district is governed by a board of directors which is responsible for the operation of the district and its financial accountability. ( https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/198.010 ) Qualifications: If the district has 100 or more voters, a candidate must be a registered voter in the district and a landowner in the district. ORS 264.410Salary: A member of the governing body of a district may receive an amount not to exceed $50 for each day or portion thereof as compensation for services performed as a member of the governing body. Such compensation shall not be deemed lucrative. The governing body may provide for reimbursement of a member for actual and reasonable traveling and other expenses necessarily incurred by a member in performing official duties. [1971 c.403 §2; 1983 c.327 §2; 1983 c.740 §53a; 1989 c.517 §1; 1995 c.79 §74] In Event of Vacancy: Except as otherwise provided by law, a vacancy in an elected office in the membership of the governing body of a district shall be filled by appointment by a majority of the remaining members of the governing body. If a majority of the membership of the governing body is vacant or if a majority cannot agree, the vacancies shall be filled promptly by the county court of the county in which the administrative office of the district is located.

Currently there is no communications provided by the water district that addresses water conservation or district projects that I know of. I believe there are some ways that we can better communicate with the public we serve either through the improvement of the district’s official website and/or through informational inserts in the billing mail. Other options could also include community awareness meetings which could also provide another venue for the community to express their concerns and ideas.
The field of water quality is constantly changing and improving. In order to be able to improve the demand for adequate and uninterrupted supply of clean safe water the employees of the water district need the means to be able to further their knowledge of future industry standards and improvements. The cost of this education, as far as I know falls solely on the workers. I would suggest some form of supplemental funding for education and expenses of skilled workers. Other concerns would be in aquiring quality materials and equipment in order to accomplish the projects properly. This may require doing some shopping around in order to form a diverse set of material providers.
Most of the skill sets that I have for this type of organization come from my education. The field of Engineering is basically a set of problem solving skills and techniques. Other courses that I had while studying for Civil and Environmental Engineering was in business application and finance. I have had the pleasure of doing a five week work study with The Winston-Dillard Water District while I was studying for my Civil Engineering degree. In the limited time that I spent with them I had discovered how demanding their occupation is and how important it was to maintain the highest degree of service and water quality.
