Chairman Ryan McMahon announced he is recommending William J. Barlow as Chairman and Presiding Officer of the Metropolitan Water Board (MWB).

Mr. Barlow’s appointment was considered by the Onondaga County Legislature’s Environmental Protection Committee today, where it passed unanimously. The appointment will require confirmation of the full Legislature at the August 1, 2018 session. Barlow stated “I'm thrilled to be appointed to the Onondaga County Metropolitan Water Board and very much appreciate the opportunity from Chairman McMahon and the Onondaga County Legislature to be involved in the regional partnership between the City of Oswego and Onondaga County. I look forward to contributing to the entire Central New York area as we work on improving our infrastructure and continue providing clean, quality water to our local communities.”

The Metropolitan Water Board was established in 1962 as the Administrative Body for the Onondaga County Water District. Their mission is to provide clean, safe, reliable, sustainable and cost-efficient wholesale drinking water from Lake Ontario to the Central New York region. Chairman McMahon added “Billy Barlow brings a diverse skillset to this position. As Mayor of the City of Oswego, he is familiar with the relationship that exists between Onondaga and Oswego to provide a consistent, clean water supply to our municipalities.” Upon confirmation, Mr. Barlow’s term will expire on December 31, 2020.
