Public service districts or "PSDs" are public corporations established by county commissions with approval of the West Virginia Public Service Commission. These local entities manage the development and maintenance of water, sewage and gas systems covering areas specified by the county commission. They were authorized by the Legislature to help extend services to rural areas and allow municipal water and sewage systems to become more efficient by sharing services and resources with surrounding areas.
West Virginia law requires each county commission to file annually a list of the names of the public service districts within their respective counties, and names of the current members of each PSD board with the Secretary of State. The filing is due no later than July 1 of each year. Upon receipt of the list, the document is placed in the Executive Records section and is viewable online in the Executive Journal Search.
The requirement for this filing is specified in W.Va. Code §16-13A-2.
