Mike Esnard, Pine Cove Water District president, resigned effective the end of the June 10 board meeting.
“… I hereby am submitting my resignation, as I am leaving Southern California,” he wrote in his letter, which explains why he did not file to run for re-election this August.
Pine Cove residents interested in completing Esnard’s term, which expires in December 2015, may submit a letter of interest to the PCWD office by close of business Thursday, July 9.
The board may make the appointment to replace Esnard at its July 15 meeting.
Esnard has been on the board since February 2007 and president since June 2013. Until the board holds its annual election for officers in December, Vice President Robert Hewitt assumes the president’s role.
Following the meeting, the district held a barbecue in Esnard’s honor and presented a plaque to him.
