About the Board of Municipal Utilities

Avon Lake Regional Water is governed by an independent board, the Avon Lake Board of Municipal Utilities, which is duly elected by the residents of Avon Lake to establish policy and oversee the utility’s operations.

Regulations were adopted by the Avon Lake Board of Municipal Utilities, December 3, 2007, and most recently revised January 16, 2019. Click here to review the Avon Lake Regional Water regulations.

The Board has five members and meets twice a month (the first and third Tuesday), except during summer recess in July and August, when the second meetings in July and August, does not take place. Regular meeting times and dates are posted on our website calendar and open to the public.

Board members are elected to serve four-year terms. Two or three members’ terms expire every two years, and the members must run for re-election. The Board appoints the Chief Utilities Executive and Chief of Utility Operations, who are responsible for management and operations. The utility manages its own personnel and is directly responsible to the residents of Avon Lake for water and sewer service. While they function independently of Avon Lake’s city government, Board members meet regularly with City Officials and cooperate on major projects.
