The commissioners also elected Charles P. Shotmeyer as vice chairman.

Shotmeyer has served on the Commission since 2000 and has recently served as chairman of the commission from 2012 until this year.

“Over the last year, NJDWSC has been looking at its overall operations and working with the Governor’s Administration to identify efficiencies and policies that will fit in with the Governor’s priorities,” said Eustace. “The Commission is committed to serving the water needs of our customers every day at the lowest possible cost, and Chairman Burrell is dedicated to that goal”, said Eustace.
