Board Members

The Board of Commissioners and Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District were created by Florida House Bill No. 471 in 2002. The business and affairs of the district are overseen by this five-member elected board. There are three leadership positions on the Board of Commissioners: the Chair, the Vice Chair, and the Secretary-Treasurer. The governing board members elect one of their members to fill each of these positions annually. You may contact the commissioners here.

The election for Board of Commissioners is nonpartisan and is held every four years. Each board member must be a registered elector, residing within the boundaries of the district continually through his or her term. In the first election of the Board of Commissioners, the five available positions were filled by the candidates with the five highest vote totals. The two board members with the fewest votes served a term of two years, while the remaining three served a term of four years. This created the staggered voting we have today. Currently, all Commissioners serve a four year term.
