Meet the Board

As set by state law, Cowlitz PUD is governed by an elected board of three commissioners. Each commissioner represents a defined geographic section of the county. Their terms are six years. It is the Board’s responsibility to set utility policy and to hire and oversee the work of the general manager.

The Cowlitz PUD Board of Commissioners meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 2:00 p.m. in the John Searing Auditorium at the PUD at 961 12th Ave in Longview. These meetings are open to the public and customer participation is encouraged.
