Bluebonnet GCD is governed by a sixteen-member Board of Directors (Board) with four Directors appointed to four-year terms by the Commissioners Courts of Austin, Grimes, Walker, and Waller Counties. Each Director is appointed to represent one of four interest groups within the county. Those interest groups are: Agricultural Interests, Industrial Interests, Municipal Interests, and Rural Water Supplier’s Interests.
