About the Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is appointed by the Board of Supervisors, and since 1976, the Board of Supervisors has appointed its members as Directors of the JCSA to more fully coordinate JCSA activities with those of the County in the planning and development of utility systems.
The Board of Directors has authorized water and sewer operations for the JCSA within the primary service area in the County. The JCSA also provides water and/or sewer service to limited sections of York County and the City of Williamsburg with the concurrence of the appropriate governing bodies.
The JCSA’s operating funds are self-supporting, and the JCSA receives no share of any local or property tax levies. The Board of Directors has the sole power to set water and sewer utility rates and related fees. The Board of Directors adopted an inverted-block or inclining rate structure in 1996 for fiscal year 1997 for residential customers which incorporates a unit charge that increases with increasing consumption. The primary objective of establishing the inverted-block rate structure was to reduce water use, particularly from large-volume residential customers.
