District management, in collaboration with staff, developed a this six-year strategic business plan to look beyond the traditional annual budget process in identifying, and better positioning the District to adequately respond to, future needs and fiscal constraints. Recognizing that the District annually undergoes development of Board-guided goals through creation of an annual budget, this Plan looks six years into the future with an intent to proactively plan today for what is anticipated tomorrow. Plan goals have were also developed in consideration of Board-identified priorities that resulted from the Effective Utility Management (EUM) assessment process. Built into this Plan are department-specific goals with strategies for completion, and workload indicators and performance measures to monitor goal attainment.
The Plan looks at the trends of the District to anticipate future needs. Financial resources are also forecast, taking into consideration economic indicators, recent legislation, and anticipated mandates. The Plan is then focused on using available resources in the most efficient manner to provide quality service to our customers, while supplementing existing resources as necessary to meet the current and future needs of the District. The Board adopted the 2022-2027 Six-year Strategic Business Plan at their Regular Meeting on December 8, 2021.
