Mike Myser was sworn in as the newest addition to the Prior Lake-Spring Lake Watershed District’s (PLSLWD) Board of Managers at the March 13 board meeting. In anticipation of his three-year term, Myser said, “I look forward to providing innovative ideas and fresh perspectives as a new Board member. I will strive to seek out the best ideas to secure water quality and manage water quantity – whatever they may be-and get them implemented, in a cost-effective way.”
Myser is no stranger to the subject of water quality. Having lived on Prior Lake for 15 years, he is an avid SCUBA diver and boater and loves to spend time on the lake with his family and friends. He has been a strong advocate for protecting water quality and has been very involved in the community in a variety of capacities. During his tenure as the Mayor of Prior Lake from 2010-2012, Myser served as the City’s liaison to PLSLWD, participating in PLSLWD’s meetings and workshops, and was an active member in Scott County Association for Leadership and Efficiency (SCALE).
Myser has had a long career in business, sales and marketing. He is currently the co-owner of a technology company which develops cloud-based software solutions for companies and state agencies for energy and water conservation applications.
Watershed districts are local, special-purpose units of government that work to solve and prevent water-related problems that go beyond political boundaries. The Scott County Board of Commissioners appoints individuals to serve for three-year staggered terms on the District’s Board of Managers. There are five managers on the board and they are responsible for directing the District’s policies.
