Board of Comissioners

The district's day to day activities are carried out by a board of five commissioners. One is appointed by the county, one by Town of Westford (the township with largest portion by valuation). The remaining three are elected by the electors and property owners in the district. They serve staggered three year terms. At all times, the power of the commissioners are subject to the decisions of the membership at the annual meeting. Commissioners can:

  • Manage fiscal matters
