ECWA Elects New Chairman and Treasurer

May 1, 2017

The Erie County Water Authority (ECWA) has confirmed the appointment of Robert N. Anderson as the new chairman of the ECWA Board of Commissioners. The appointment was made official as part of April 28's Annual Meeting.

Anderson has served as the board's acting treasurer since his appointment in 2015. Prior to becoming treasurer, Anderson contributed 35 years in the public sector, including 26 years in management in the Amherst Highway Department, 13 years of which he served as superintendent of highways.

"I am proud to be elected chairman of the ECWA by my fellow commissioners" said Anderson. "I am humbled by their support and look forward to the tremendous things we will accomplish in the future."

To fill the vacancy left by Anderson, the board has also elected former Town of Boston councilman, Karl J. Simmeth Jr., to serve as treasurer.
