About Us


Daily operations are managed for the District by a business manager. In addition, the District contracts with a water management service, a meter reader and, as needed, legal counsel. A board secretary takes and posts meeting minutes and keeps records.

The Board of AHCWD holds public meetings on the first Tuesday of every month, 6:30pm online, presently we are on Google Meet. You can find the access on the Agenda. https://meet.google.com/ Before the Pandemic, we met at the Chemeketa Park Clubhouse, which is adjacent to 17759 Apache Trail, Los Gatos, CA 95033. Parking is accessible from Comanche Trail, just past the intersection of Apache Trail and Comanche Trail on the playground pavement. The agenda for each meeting is posted on AHCWD’s website and on the District’s bulletin board located by the big eucalyptus tree on the pullout near the entrance to Locust Drive. Members of the District are particularly encouraged to attend regular meetings, the only exception being the occasional closed meetings (usually occurring from 6-6:30pm prior to a regular meeting) where confidential matters or legal issues are discussed.

At the beginning of each public meeting there is an open section set aside for public comment (see agenda) where anyone in attendance can address the Board for a period of 3 minutes on any matter of concern. Such items may be added to the following month’s agenda for lengthier future discussion where appropriate.
