GRAFTON, Mass.--The Grafton Water District is seeking a new commissioner and is accepting applications.
The current commissioner, Robert Sims, has had the position since 1995 but will resign by Dec. 11 when he moves out of town.
"One of the stipulations of the position is a requirement to live in the district," said Matthew Pearson, system manager of the Grafton Water District.
Anyone interested in fulfilling the remaining term of Sim's appointment, which expires in April 2015, should submit a cover letter and a resume or professional experience description.
The commissioner receives a yearly stipend of $1,000 and meets at 5:30 p.m. the second Tuesday of the month at the Water District office, 44 Millbury St., Grafton. Attendance at other meetings, civic events and the annual district meeting in April also are required.
