Commissioners hold regularly scheduled public meetings on the first Tuesday of each month, typically starting at 5:30 p.m. Customers and the general public are welcome and encouraged to attend. Visit the agenda page for the current month's meeting to read background information on agenda items. Access tentative future agendas, meeting minutes and recordings at the Board Agendas & Minutes page for the current year.
If the first Tuesday of the month is a holiday, the meeting will be held on the next business day or on another Tuesday that same month. If an additional regular meeting is required, generally we will hold that meeting at 5:30 p.m. on the third Tuesday of that month. The board president and general manager may reschedule these meetings, schedule additional meetings or cancel any board meeting by mutual agreement.
You are welcome to contact the commissioner representing your ward or send an email to all five commissioners. It's important to us you receive a timely response, so your email will be copied to the General Manager's office.
You may also send written comments and communication to:

Opportunity for public comment is provided at each board meeting. There will be two opportunities for comment at the December 7 board meeting. During the public input portion of the agenda, you are invited to address the board about any EWEB topic or issue; comments regarding the 2022 Proposed Budgets and Prices will be heard during the Public Hearing portion of the meeting. Each person is allotted up to three minutes to speak during either session.
Members of the public wishing to provide input are invited to do so by completing the Sign Up to Speak web form - please specify whether you wish to provide your testimony during the Public Input (any topic) or Public Hearing (2022 Proposed Budgets and Prices) portion of the meeting.

Staff will contact speakers at the email address provided with instructions for calling in to the Public Input/Hearing sessions via telephone.
