Water & Sewer Review Board Vacancies

This Water & Sewer Advisory Board is empowered to:

  • Hear water and sewer billing disputes; said board will make a recommendation to the Town Administrator as to the remedies, if any, and the Town Administrator shall make a binding decision.
  • Review the Assessments and costs associated with the operation, maintenance and capital requirements of both systems to ensure such costs are just and equitable and in proportion to the benefits of the users.
  • Hold at least one annual public hearing by March 31, and more if necessary, to receive citizen input on the current year, the proposed budget, and rates for the next fiscal year and any other information as may be requested concerning the water and sewer departments. Said meeting shall be advertised in a local newspaper to give citizens ample notice. Said board shall make a rate recommendation to the Town Administrator prior to Annual Town Meeting.

It's a lesser commitment than some of the other boards/committees in town for those residents trying to volunteer without having a great deal of time to give. 

There are two vacancies on the Board.  One appointment with term ending April 30, 2020 will be made by the Stoneham Select Board and the other with term ending in April 30,  2021 will be made by the Finance & Advisory Board. Anyone interested in serving on this board may contact Finance & Advisory Board Chair Tim Waitkevitch at waitkevitcht@gmail.com or Select Board Office Manager Dava Kilbride at dkilbride@stoneham-ma.gov .  For questions please contact 781.279.2680.
