Water conservancy district seeking directors

The last time the San Juan Water Conservancy District (SJWCD) had a full board, 10 directors, was in the fall of 2009.

Currently, there are six members on the board, the newest being Raymond Finney.

Two board members’ terms will come to an end this January — the terms of board chair Rodney Proffitt and director Carrie Weiss. Both have committed to staying on the board for another term.

Directors Larry Ash, Jack DeLange and Windsor Chacey’s terms expire March 21, 2014. Sue Walen and Finney’s terms expire March 21, 2016.

The board will still have four open seats.

SJWCD was formed in 1987 as a Title 29 special district with the mission to, “conserve, maximize and utilize the water resources of the San Juan River and its tributaries, and that property within the District will be benefited by this purpose,” and, “to address future water supply needs in the District.”

According to state statute, each board member serves a four-year term. The directors are not term limited, thus all are free to apply to be appointed for additional four-year terms.

SJWCD officially filed a Notice of Acceptance of Applications in this week’s SUN stating it will accept resumes listing qualifications for service.

Resumes should be sent to Archuleta County District Court, Archuleta County Courthouse, P.O. Box 148, Pagosa Springs, CO 81147.

In order to be considered for service on the board, a person must have resided within the district for one year, must be the owner of real property within the district in Archuleta County and be knowledgeable in water matters.
