Detroit Board of Water Commissioners Seeks Technical and Financial Advisors

At its July 27, 2011 meeting, the Detroit Board of Water Commissioners approved a resolution authorizing efforts to hire an interim technical advisor and/or a financial advisor.
Advisors will assist the Board in its efforts over the next 3 to 6 months. The main tasks will include reviewing rate setting, capital projects and financial implications. Advisors will work directly for the Board of Water Commissioners, not DWSD senior management.

The Board is soliciting names and resumes until August 17th and plans on making a decision at its August 24, 2011 meeting.  The interim advisors could be loaned or detailed from a municipal entity or private industry. 
Interested persons should e-mail a letter with their availability and salary requirements (if any) and a professional resume to Chair Mary Blackmon or Commissioner James Fausone.  Applications are due by August 17, 2011

Update: At its August 24, 2011 meeting, the Board of Water Commissioners extended to September 14, 2011 the deadline to submit applications and resumes. Through August 17th, the Board had received 6 applications, 5 for the technical advisor position and 1 for the financial advisor position. The Board indicated that it would accept applications from existing DWSD employees. 

The Water Board plans to interview candidates on September 27th, and make a decision at the regular Board Meeting on Wednesday, September 28th.
