The Broward County Water Advisory Board has elected Commissioner Roy Gold to serve as chair for a one-year term.
“Commissioner Gold has been an active member of the Water Advisory Board, bringing forward several critical water resource issues for the Board’s consideration and action,” said Dr. Jennifer Jurado, Director of the County’s Natural Resources Planning and Management Division and staff to the Board. “During his term as Chair, we look forward to his leadership and enthusiasm for ensuring long-term water resource sustainability in Broward County.”
Previously, Commissioner Gold served as vice-chair of the board. The Water Advisory Board makes recommendations to the Broward County Board of County Commissioners in matters relating to the development, use and management of water resources within Broward County, which may include water supply, water conservation, ground water recharge, reuse of wastewater effluent, and stormwater management.

He is chairperson of Broward Beautiful, the Broward County affiliate dedicated to community beautification and litter removal. He has coordinated Coral Springs’ Adopt-a-Mile program since 1990 and oversees more than 450 volunteers as the Coral Springs site leader for the annual Broward Waterway Cleanup. Additionally, he championed both the Neighborhood Tree Planting Program and the Tree Subsidy Program.
