Public Utility District No. 2 of Pacific County is directed by a three-member Board of Commissioners elected by citizens of Pacific County.

Each Commissioner represents a different sector of the county and serves a six-year term. Each Commissioner also represents the District as a delegate to various business organizations. The terms are staggered so that a different Commissioner stands for election every two years. These are paid, part-time positions.

The Commissioners set utility policies and hire a General Manager to implement those policies.

Board meetings are open to the public and start at 1 P.M. Meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month in the auditorium at the Willapa Operations Center in Raymond and the third Tuesday of each month in the auditorium at the Peninsula Operations Center in Long Beach.
