The board for Superstition Mountains Community Facilities District No. 1, 5661 S. Ironwood Drive in Apache Junction, recently voted to change its name to the Apache Junction Sewer District.
“We believe this will more clearly communicate what we do and identify the community we serve. Our new website is under construction and is coming soon,” it states at smcfd.org.
The sewer district is an independent, public, nonprofit entity developed solely for the benefit of its customers and the Apache Junction community to operate and maintain a regional system for the collection, transport and treatment of sewage from the properties existing within its boundaries.
Board members to the sewer district are appointed by the Apache Junction City Council.
Members of the district board serve as volunteers who are responsible for setting policy and rates, adopting a budget and other high-level decision making regarding all aspects of the district’s operation and on-going business affairs.
By state law, board members cannot own 40 acres in the district, cannot be an employee or agent of a landowner who owns 40 acres or more in the district, cannot be an employee of the city or the county and cannot be an elected official of the city or county.
