Board of Commissioners
William C. Olson – Chairman
Westbury Water District Board of Commissioners Chairperson William Olson is a shining example of volunteerism. Serving on the board of commissioners since 1999, Olson has focused his attention on maintaining Westbury Water’s infrastructure to be in compliance with current drinking water standards and to provide enough of this precious resource to meet the demands of customers and all fire fighting needs.
Born and raised in Westbury, Olson formed a hometown commitment early on when he became a volunteer of the Westbury Fire Department soon after graduating from high school. Holding every position from lieutenant to captain, the now ex-chief of the department currently serves as a training instructor.
Following in the footsteps of his father and older brother, Olson was recruited to become a New York City firefighter in 1977 and served as captain of Ladder Company 150 in Hollis, Queens for 25 years before retiring. He was one of the many NYC-based firefighters who provided assistance following the devastating September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001.
Olson enjoys gardening, cooking, playing golf and spending time with his wife, Kathleen. They have two grown children, William and Amy.

He is a graduate of the State University of New York College at Old Westbury with a Bachelor of Science in accounting and has been employed in the insurance industry for the past 32 years. Barry enjoys spending quality time with his wife Barbara and serving his church community. He is an avid aviation enthusiast and spends leisure time gardening, antiquing and taking road trips.
