GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS COORDINATOR

Salary Range: $6,185 to $7,518 per month, ($74,220-$90,215 annually DOE) plus generous benefits. Position is offered at 40 hours per week.

Application Deadline: All materials must be received by 5:00 p.m. on January 26, 2022.

The Rockwood Water People’s Utility District is seeking a motivated and self-driven individual to join our team of public servants. This position has a diverse set of duties that includes coordination of the Board of Directors, Public Outreach and Water Conservation programs for the District.

This summer, Senator Jeff Merkley helped the District to break ground on the largest public works project in the history of the District, the Cascade Groundwater Development Program. Funded by a Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act Loan, the project, when completed, will change the way the District operates, by transitioning it from reselling water purchased wholesale from the City of Portland, into an organization that is a fully-independent water supplier that pumps, treats, and distributes high-quality groundwater from aquifers located deep underground. This position will be in a key role to ensure that outreach and communications about the changes, Board interactions and decision making, and conservation of our precious groundwater resource, result in a successful future for the District.
