Neal Meyers Appointed to OMWD Board of Directors

Neal Meyers was sworn in this evening as Olivenhain Municipal Water District’s newest director, representing Division 5 of OMWD’s service area. The appointment of Mr. Meyers fills the seat vacated by the retirement of outgoing director Ed Sprague.

“We are excited to welcome an individual of Neal’s caliber to the Board of Directors,” stated OMWD Board President Larry Watt. “His experience with special district law and operations, as well as his expertise with risk management, will allow him to hit the ground running and continue OMWD’s tradition of responsive and transparent governance.”

Mr. Meyers has resided in OMWD’s Division 5 since 1993. He began practicing law in 1984 in San Diego’s North County, and represented many private clients and public agencies during his career. He received his juris doctor from the University of San Diego, and also holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo where he concentrated on local government.

Mr. Meyers was one of four applicants for the Division 5 director position, for which the board conducted interviews at a special meeting held on May 12. He will serve through November 2022.

The May 19 board meeting was the final meeting for Mr. Sprague, who has represented Division 5 since 2008.
