Do you want to have a part in overseeing the important work we do?
The Portland Utility Board (PUB) is made up of citizen volunteers that help guide City Council in the management of the Portland Water Bureau and our “sister” agency, the Bureau of Environmental Services.
And City Council is looking for volunteers to join the Board.
What’s involved in PUB service? So glad you asked!
Meetings & Members
The PUB meets monthly to craft advice for City Council on each bureaus’ financial plans, capital improvement projects, public policies, rates, and more.
The board has 11 voting members and 3 ex-officio members. Members are appointed by the mayor, in consultation with the Commissioner-in-Charge.
The PUB is currently recruiting members with the expectation of having appointments made before the beginning of July.
A subcommittee will meet near the end of May to review submissions, interview candidates, and make recommendations to the full board at their June meeting.
