The city of Apache Junction is seeking applicants for the Superstition Mountains Community Facilities District No. 1 Board of Directors. Serving on a board or commission provides an opportunity to work closely with other citizens and the city council to help make decisions about the future of the city.
The facilities district, also known as the Sewer District, was formed by the Apache Junction City Council in July 1992, pursuant to Title 48, Chapter 4, Article 6 of the Arizona Revised Statutes as a separate governmental entity from the city and is governed by an independent, voluntary, five-member board of directors. The district is an independent, public, non-profit utility developed solely for the benefit of its customers and the Apache Junction community to operate and maintain a regional system for the collection, transport, and treatment of sewage from the properties existing within its boundaries.
Board members are appointed by the city council after submission of an application and a council interview during a work session meeting. Appointments are unpaid and serve a fixed term.
There are two vacancies on the district board with a term length of six years. The board meets once a month and holds special meetings when necessary. Appointments to this board are open to property owners with no more than 40 acres within service boundaries. While it is helpful if you have some experience or knowledge about the board or commission on which you wish to serve, the desire to contribute your talents, ideas and opinions to enhance the community is most important.
Applications must be submitted online by June 24 and can be found at www.ajcity.net/boards. Candidates will be interviewed and appointed at council meetings in July. For additional information or assistance please contact the city clerk’s office at (480) 474-5061.
