Board of Directors

Our Board is comprised of 5 members of the District, elected to a 4 year term.

President, Allen Flick

  

 Allen G. Flick, Sr., President

 Starting in 2005, Allen Flick was elected to the Board of Directors and has proudly served as the President since.  “My platform was to insure every rate payer has the purest water possible, at the lowest rate possible.  By working cohesively with other Directors and the highly qualified management team, we have accomplished this goal to the present day. I believe we have built Quartz Hill Water District into one of the best districts in the valley. We are fiscally sound with an excellent credit rating of AAA-.  We are a district that is strong today and moving into the future. “

President Flick feels very proud that facing challenging times of the current drought situation, the District has been able to stay strong by thoughtfully planning ahead for this situation, adding wells, water storage, water banking (emergency water), turf replacement programs, rebates, and water conservation.

“My special thanks to you, the rate payers who became our partners in making this plan successful. As President of the board, again I would like to thank you for this opportunity to serve you now and into the future.”

K. Michael Scott

In 2006, I was appointed to the Board of Directors to fill a vacancy. I am not a politician but took this opportunity to represent the views of the typical homeowner of our Quartz Hill Water District. It has been my intention to create policies that are fair to the homeowner and protect the District.”  Michael has worked in concert with the other directors and with the educated advice of the District Managers to find a balance that allows the District to be able to navigate the state water conservation regulations while mitigating the impact on the Rate Payers. “I have been fortunate to witness firsthand how strong policies can keep us providing the best quality drinking water at some of the lowest rate cost, while maintaining a balanced budget.”
