Advisory Council on Wells and Borings
The Advisory Council on Wells and Borings is authorized in Minnesota Statutes, section 103I.105 and consists of 18 voting members. The membership includes six well contractors, four limited or specialized well and boring contractors, two public members, and six representatives of various state agencies. The council advises the Minnesota Department of Health on technical matters related to the construction, repair, and sealing of wells and borings and the licensure of well and boring contractors. The council also administers the oral examination of well contractor license applicants. Council meetings are held quarterly, usually the first Wednesday of March, June, September, and December, in St. Paul, Minnesota.
The term of membership for any nonagency member is four years. Please refer to the list of council members for terms of service and upcoming vacancies. The agency representatives are assigned by their respective commissioners. Persons interested in serving on the council must submit an application (Appointments Application for Service on State Agency) to the Secretary of State, who handles all applications for open appointments to state boards, councils, and other bodies. The Commissioner of Health makes the actual appointments to the council. Nonagency members receive a $55 per diem for each meeting attended and lodging, meal, and travel expenses are reimbursed.
