Water District Commissioner Opening

The Rollinsford Water & Sewer District (RWSD) is looking for a committed person in the District willing to be appointed a Commissioner. A person wishing to be appointed must both live in the District and be a registered voter. Commissioners are charged with the responsibility of overseeing the District’s efforts to deliver drinking water and see that wastewater (sewage) is processed in a responsible manner within the confines of a municipally imposed budget. Interested candidates should be ready to assume the burden of that balance. An understanding of basic accounting, construction, industrial operations, responsible business operations or related skills as well as an appreciation for the limitations of budgeting laws in NH Municipalities are desirable.

Interested individuals should contact the Clerk of the District by phone at 603-742-8124 or by email and the Chair of the Commissioners, Verne Crosier, at 603-749-9210 or by email explaining why they would wish to be appointed Commissioner.

DEADLINE FRIDAY 4.19.19: Budget Committee Vacancy

Due to a pre-term resignation, there is an open seat on the Budget Committee. Under NH RSA 32 Section 15(VII) “vacancies shall be filled by appointment by the budget committee.” The Budget Committee is requesting qualified Rollinsford residents with interest in filling the Rollinsford Budget Committee vacancy to contact the Town Administrator with a letter or email indicating they are qualified to serve as an at-large member on the budget committee (i.e., they are resident of the Town, not employed by the Town, and not a representative of other Town committees or boards that would disqualify them). Letters may be dropped off at the town office or emailed to the Town Administrator.

Interested candidates should indicate in the letter or email why they wish to serve on the Budget Committee and what skills and experience they would bring to the committee. The term will last until the next annual election in March 2020.

Candidates must indicate their interest in serving on the Budget Committee by Friday, April 19, 2019 at 5:00 PM. Candidates will be asked to attend a Budget Committee meeting to be held on April 24, 2019 at 6:30 PM in the Rollinsford Town Hall. Brief interviews will be held with each prospective candidate. The Budget Committee will then select one candidate to fill the vacancy.
