Public invited to apply for sewer board vacancy
The Karcher Creek Sewer Districts board of commissioners is accepting applications for a seat on the board vacated by commissioner and chairwoman Tracy DeLucia.
According to Commissioner Bill Huntington, DeLucia was forced to resign after she announced plans to move outside the district.
If anyone would like to apply, wed really welcome that, Huntington said.
Karcher Creek Sewer District is governed by a Board of Commissioners, three publicly elected citizens living within the districts service area.
Huntington said a new commissioner will be appointed for the remainder of DeLucias term, until December 2009, at the regular commissioners meeting on June 28 at 2 p.m.
Meetings are held in the conference room of the districts building at 2924 SE Lund Avenue in Port Orchard.
Anyone living inside the sewer district boundaries may call or visit the office and ask to be added to the agenda and be considered for the position.
Huntington said the board is currently considering former Annapolis Water District Commissioner Sue Waye for the position.
Waye was forced to resign her seat on the board several years ago after it was discovered she did not live inside the district boundaries.
DeLucia was first appointed to the Karcher Creek Sewer District Board of Commissioners to fill a vacancy in 1998. She ran for the position in the next election and was elected to a full term starting in 1999.
Her priorities included educating the ratepayers and children about what happens after they flush, increasing the number of treatment plant educational tours attended by school children and fostering better working relationships with other government agencies.
Shes been a very good commissioner, Huntington said. Were going to miss her.
