Meet The Board

A six-member board of directors, with six alternates, governs the FGUA, with representatives from Citrus, Hendry, Lee, Marion, Pasco, and Polk counties. These board members meet monthly to represent the member systems and establish policy and priorities on issues such as expansion, rates, environmental resource management and long-range planning. Each board member is a county employee appointed by their local government. Their expertise in water and sewer utility management makes the board a very important part of the FGUA structure. In addition, the board works hard to make sure the FGUA serves your best interests.
