Kingston Water Board Commissioners Appointments and Terms

Today, we acquired the appointment and terms of the current City of Kingston Water Board Commissioners Appointments and Terms.

In the City of Kingston’s Charter (C11-1) under ‘Appointment and Terms’ that ‘The Water Commissioners in office, and their successors, shall constitute the Board of Water Commissioners of the City of Kingston. Appointments in case of vacancy shall be for the unexpired term, and at the expiration of a term for five years.”

We haven’t located anything yet that speaks to term limits for the Water Board, and invite citizens to do a little research by going through the Code to find any information alluding to terms (and how many can be served consecutively or otherwise) for Boards and Commissions.

We understand that as it has been in the past, the City of Kingston struggles with capacity to fill these volunteer seats. However, given the current proposed Water sale, we suspect that probably today the Mayor wouldn’t have any trouble finding new qualified members.
