Commissioners hold regularly scheduled public meetings on the first Tuesday of each month. The meetings are currently being held virtually due to the pandemic, and typically start at 5:30 p.m. We welcome and encourage our customer-owner's to be involved. Visit the agenda page for the current month's meeting to read background information, access the live stream link, or watch the recording later.
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

Opportunity for public comment is provided at each board meeting. During the public input portion of the agenda, you are invited to address the board about any EWEB topic or issue.

Members of the public wishing to provide input are invited to do so by completing one of the web forms below. Forms can be submitted any time, but not later than 2:00 pm on the day of the board meeting to participate.
Submit Written Testimony - Testimony of 200 words or less will be read into the public record.
Sign Up to Speak - Provide spoken comments via telephone during the board meeting. Staff will contact speakers at the email address provided with instructions for calling in to the Public Input session.
Please note that names and testimonies will be included in the meeting's audio/video recording and summarized in the meeting minutes. Both are made available on eweb.org following the meeting.
If you'd like to contact commissioners, but do not wish to speak or provide testimony during the board meeting, you are always welcome to contact the commissioner representing your ward or send an email to all five commissioners.
