The Commissioner's Corner

Minutes and Agenda

Jerry Lundberg

Jerry Lundberg
Position #1

Commissioner Lundberg was first elected an Annapolis Water District commissioner 1987. During his tenure, he has worked to maintain quality service at affordable rates. The District has experienced consistent growth for the past 20 years and Jerry has been instrumental in having the District wells and storage tank upgraded to meet the demands of the community.

Jerry and the Lundberg family are committed to the Port Orchard community. He is an assistant principal in the South Kitsap High School with more than 25 years of teaching and counseling experience and he is active in the high school sports program.

Jim Hart

James "Jim" Hart
Position #2

Commissioner Hart has been a water and sewer commissioner for over 30 years. He was first elected as a commissioner to the Kitsap County Sewer District #5 in 1975. At that time, the District had a spirogester primary treatment facility from the 1960’s. He was active in the design and construction of the community’s secondary treatment facility in the 1980’s. That plant used the activated sludge process and served the City and District for 20 years. He was instrumental in using membrane bioreactors in the recent expansion of the facility and he is leading the District into the use of reclaimed water.

When he was first elected, he realized that he did not fully understand the wastewater process and the engineer’s discussions. Jim enrolled in the Bates Technical College wastewater course to increase his effectiveness as a sewer commissioner. This higher level of system understanding has proven invaluable as the District has expanded its treatment system technology and environmental responsibilities.

Karcher Creek Sewer District is the 2001 District of the Year and Jim was selected the 2006 Commissioner of the Year by the Washington Association of Sewer and Water Districts.

Susan Way

Susan Way
Position #3

Commissioner Way has been both a water and sewer commissioner with Annapolis Water District (2000) and Karcher Creek Sewer District (2005). Her priority is to keep West Sound Utility District responsive to its rate payers while preparing for its future state and federal obligations. With careful monetary controls, the District will continue to meet the stringent wastewater treatment standards. Working with the other Board members, she oversees the District’s endeavors in developing a reclaimed water program and working towards construction of the South Kitsap Environmental Education Center.

Sue works at the Retsil Veterans Home in its Transportation Department and has raised her family in Port Orchard.
