The Vail Recreation District Board of Directors, a five-member panel, is responsible for setting policies and guiding staff throughout the year. Each board member is elected to staggered four-year terms. Elections occur every two years in May with the next election scheduled in May 2020. Board members must be residents or own real property in Vail. The VRD is a special district and is separate from the Town of Vail.
The current Board of Directors and the year their terms expire are:
Tom Saalfeld (Board Chair) - 2022
Bill Suarez (Secretary/Treasurer) - 2020
Roland Kjesbo - 2020
Kim Newbury-Rediker - 2022
Jason Plante - 2022
The board meets at 5 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of each month (second Thursday in November and December due to holidays) at the Vail Town Council Chambers to discuss issues that could impact the VRD and the constituents of the District. Public input is welcome and is always the first item on the agenda. High Five Access Media (formerly Public Access Channel 5) films and airs Vail Recreation District board meetings.
