Board of Trustees

The five member Board of Trustees is the governing body of the District. The board's main goal is to assure that wastewater collection and treatment in Boone County protects public health and the environment as efficiently and as economically as possible. In order to meet this goal, the Board endeavors to ensure that all new wastewater treatment facilities and all existing treatment facilities meet State and Federal requirements for discharge and operations. Also, the Board strives to minimize the number of treatment facilities both private and public in Boone County.

More specific duties include long-range planning; review of development plans; approval of the annual budget; approval of user rates; approval of contracts and agreements with engineers, contractors, consultants, other public bodies, etc.; approval of revisions to District rules and regulations; approval of bond elections and closings; review of monthly financials; and more. The District's management and staff report their activities to the Board on a monthly basis.

The Board is not involved in overseeing on-site wastewater systems that serve one private home or business. On-site systems are inspected by the Boone County Health Department.

The Board meets every third Tuesday of the month at 5:30 pm at the District Headquarters (1314 N. 7th Street, Columbia). The meetings are open to the public.

Appointments to the Board are made by the Boone County Commission. Being a District customer is preferred but not required. The term of service is five years. If you are interested in serving on the district board, applications are available at the Commission Office in the Boone County Government Center, 801 E. Walnut, Room 245, or by calling 573-886-4305.
