County Mayor Coppinger noted, “Finding someone with the expertise and qualifications that Alice has for this appointment will serve the citizens of Hamilton County well as the WWTA continues to consider significant wastewater challenges. We are fortunate that she was willing to accept an appointment to a board that is doing so much to meet present and future sewer needs.” 

WWTA Board Chairman Mike Moon said, “We appreciate the long tenure of John McPherson on the WWTA board. His commitment to the work of the board and to the staff of the WWTA is something that will always be valued. We are pleased that his successor brings insight and knowledge of both the city and the county to the table. This expertise will be invaluable as we continue to work with the EPA in executing a consent decree.”
