Serving on the Board of Directors

The District is governed by a directly elected, five member Board of Directors.  Any registered voter who resides in or owns taxable property in the District can vote in District elections and serve on the Board.  Board members serve staggered four-year terms, except in the years 2020 and 2022 where directors will be elected to three-year terms due to HB18-1039, which in those cases constitute a full term.  The Board meets once a month.  The Director terms are limited by term limits.  If you would be interested in serving on the Board of Directors, please contact our office for more information.  You must reside within District boundaries or own taxable property and you would be subject to eligibility based on the defined Director Districts.

Petition of Inclusion

The District is currently working on including lands into the District which are currently served by the District but for a variety of reasons were not included to the District.  The process by which this is done is called a Petition of Inclusion.  Please contact the District if you have general questions or if you received a letter requesting your Petition of Inclusion be signed.  Inclusion into the District means that, first and foremost, you can be provided service by the District.  If you are not included into the District, then the District does not have an obligation to serve the property and your tap could be removed.  Inclusion allows you to legally vote in District elections and like other inclusions, would allow the District to assess a mill levy.  In 1992, the District met it’s obligation for repaying the General Obligation Bonds, therefore, the District no longer has a mill levy.

Please note that the initials you see on your property tax statement “NCW” or “NCWCD” are not North Weld County Water District (NWCWD) but are the initials for the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District.  If you have questions regarding their procedures or the assessed fees, please contact the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District directly at (970) 532-7700.
