MSD Board

Appointed to serve our community by the Louisville Metro Mayor, MSD’s eight-member citizen Board governs our annual budget, rates, policies and initiatives. Each member serves three-year overlapping terms and are eligible for reappointment.
Every board member is a resident of Louisville Metro and represents State Senatorial Districts in our city, ensuring a broad-based representation for the entire community. No more than five members of the Board can be affiliated with one political party.
The Board holds a regular meeting, usually on the fourth Monday of each month. Committees meet as necessary. See the board meeting schedule below.
