BACKGROUND INFORMATION

 

Previous Commission action/date:  N/A

 

Background: 

PART I - BACKGROUND:

 

The Perdido Bay Water, Sewer and Fire Protection District is a public corporation established in 1976, pursuant to Act No. 20, 1970 Special Session of the Legislature of Alabama, which is now codified at §11-89-1, et seq., Code of Alabama, 1975.  Further, when the Perdido Bay Water, Sewer and Fire Protection District was established in 1976, the Board of Directors was composed of thirteen (13) members.  Today, this District is composed of a five (5) member Board of Directors appointed by the County Commission to serve, respectively, terms of four (4) years each.

 

Please note that there remains required qualifications set forth in §11-89-6, et seq., Code of Alabama, 1975, for citizens to be appointed to the District.  The required qualifications are:

 

1) Nominee must be a duly qualified elector (i.e. registered voter) in Baldwin County.

2) Nominee must be a subscriber on the District System (i.e. member of the corporation). 

3) Nominee cannot be an officer of the State, County or municipality during tenure of office.

 

Lastly, there is a provision in §11-89-6, et seq., Code of Alabama, 1975, which requires appointments be made no earlier than thirty (30) days prior to the date such person will take office.

 

PART II - BACKGROUND ON MS. JEAN RAY:

 

The Perdido Bay Water, Sewer and Fire Protection District has proposed for Ms. Jean Ray to be re-appointed as a member of the Board of Directors (see attachment #1).  Through correspondence from the Perdido Bay Water, Sewer and Fire Protection District, staff has verified that Ms. Ray is 1) a duly qualified elector (i.e. registered voter) of Baldwin County Alabama, 2) a subscriber or member of the corporation, and 3) is not an officer of the State, County or municipality. 

 

Therefore, staff confirms Ms. Ray meets the requirements set forth in §11-89-6, et seq., Code of Alabama, 1975, to be re-appointed to the Board of Directors of the Perdido Bay Water, Sewer and Fire Protection District.

 

Staff asserts this re-appointment is at the discretion of the County Commission and the Commission can either re-appoint Ms. Ray or another qualified citizen of its choice.
