Gulf Shores Utilities Board, Gulf Shores, Alabama
General Manager

The Gulf Shores Utilities Board was created in 1967 as "The Water Works Board of the Town of Gulf Shores" as a public, nonprofit corporation to acquire and distribute potable water to its service area. In 1969, the City of Gulf Shores began construction of the first sewer system within the incorporated areas of the City. In 1984, the City of Gulf Shores established the Governmental Utilities Service Corporation (GUSC) Board to operate the sewer system and facilitate financing and expanding the sewer system. In 1989, the Water Works Board and GUSC were consolidated and established the current entity called The Utilities Board of the City of Gulf Shores. 

The Utilities Board of the City of Gulf Shores (GSU) is a municipal corporation governed by a seven-member Board of Directors. The Board members are appointed by Gulf Shores City Council for a six-year term (renewable) and serve without pay. Once appointed by City Council, a board member may not be removed by the City Council. The Board operates independently of the City of Gulf Shores. The Board is empowered to set usage rates, policies and procedures by which GSU operates. GSU's primary source of revenue is from the operation of water and sewer utilities. No other funding is provided by the City, County, State or Federal Government.

GSU provides water and wastewater services to both incorporated and unincorporated areas around the City of Gulf Shores. Its customer base is largely comprised of single-family residential units, condominiums, retail stores, restaurants, general business and governmental agencies. GSU does not provide wholesale water to other utility entities. Water billing rates are based on meter size of each entity. Wastewater billing is based on water consumption for customers with both services. Wastewater customers not serviced by water are billed at a fixed rate.

GSU's service area is a tourist community that generates a high volume of activity during the warmer months from spring to fall. It is common for water and sewer demands to be more than two times the average daily flows during these peak months. Therefore, GSU's infrastructure, production and treatment capacity and overall system operations are designed to meet these peak periods rather than an average daily demand.

The General Manager (GM) is appointed by and serves at the pleasure of the Board of Directors. The GM is responsible for the overall daily operation and performance of the utility=s production and distribution of water and the collection and treatment of wastewater systems. He or she provides leadership and direction to the departmental leaders and staff members, guides overall Board operations and provides advice and counsel to the Board of Directors. The GM implements policies adopted by the Board of Directors and ensures full compliance with State and Federal regulations and with Board goals and objectives. With assistance from departmental leaders, the GM plans for growth and the development of GSU's systems to meet current and future customer needs and to safeguard GSU assets. The GM oversees and manages GSU's financial division which requires reporting in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and governmental accounting standards, the preparation of monthly financial statements, cash projections and both operations and capital budgets. Employee safety is GSU's 1st priority. The GM's most important responsibility is to promote and follow safe practices and enhance safety awareness. He or she is required to exercise independent judgment, initiative and discretion based upon knowledge of field operations and administrative policies as well as a thorough understanding of the specific performance required of staff and consultants. Community relations activities are integral to this position and the ability to interact well with others is essential.

GSU's current highly regarded General Manager has announced his retirement after twenty-three years in the position. For additional information about Gulf Shores Utilities please visit
