St. Vrain and Left Hand Water Conservancy District Seeks Qualified Candidates to Fill Vacancy on the Board of Directors

The St. Vrain and Left Hand Water Conservancy District (District) Board of Directors has oversight over the District and appoints the Executive Director to handle day-to-day operations. The Directors have the power to set the fees and budget, and establish policies that support the vision and mission of the District. The Board meets monthly to provide direction to the staff on matters such as water education, service, stewardship, protection, and planning.

Each of the Directors are term appointed for four years through the Courts of Boulder, Weld and Larimer Counties. That is unless the position, as in this case, is vacated during said term then the newly appointed Director will fulfill the remainder of the vacated term (term ends 11/1/2022) and will have the opportunity to apply for reappointment for the next four-year term. All Directors are required to attend board meetings at the District office that occur the second Monday of every month beginning at 1:00 p.m. Directors are expected to also serve on standing or ad-hoc committees, requiring an additional two to four meetings per year. Directors receive reimbursement for miles traveled, and are compensated $100 per regular board meeting, up to $1,200 per year.
