Commissioners hold regularly scheduled public meetings on the first Tuesday of each month. The meetings are held in the North Building at EWEB, 500 E. Fourth Avenue and typically start at 5:30 p.m. We welcome and encourage our customer-owner's attendance.
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:
EWEB, Attn: Board of Commissioners
P.O. Box 10148
