Board of Trustees

The Fountain Water District is governed by a seven member Board of Trustees, all of whom reside within the bounds of the District. Each trustee is appointed by the Monroe County Board of Commissioners to represent the public’s interest with regard to rates for service, policies, expansions, and other matters related to the management and operation of the Fountain Water District. Trustees serve five-year, alternating terms on the Board. The Fountain Water District Board of Directors meet on the fourth Thursday of each month in the Monroe County Board of Commissioners Office in the Monroe County Courthouse in Waterloo, Illinois.
