The Greeley Water and Sewer Board is continuously engaged in strenuous and independent oversight of the department's strategic direction, budget, and operations. That is the charge they were given by the citizens of Greeley when they created the Board in 1958. The Board's oversight is supplemented by the annual examination of our budget by City Council. The residents of Greeley benefit from their diligence and oversight.

With the adoption of the 1958 City Charter, Greeley citizens created a Council-appointed Water Board with the duty to “acquire, develop, convey, lease, and protect water and sewer assets, supplies, and facilities.” The citizens also gave the Board the power to set the minimum water and sewer rates necessary for operation, maintenance, debt service, and depreciation. This separate rate setting authority allows City Council to focus on economic development, knowing there will be a healthy water system to support their efforts. Consequently, Greeley has one of the more robust water systems in Colorado.

The Water and Sewer Board has an important role in Greeley leadership, with seven voting members appointed by the City Council, plus the Mayor, City Manager and Director of Finance as ex-officio members. The Director of Water and Sewer is the primary staff representative to this Board. As such, the Director has the responsibility to provide reports and recommendations to the Board related to their autonomous rate-making and water resource authority, and to adhere to the City Council policies and priorities as directed by the City Manager.
