My Top 3 Priorities

  • Remain accountable to rate payers by practicing fiscal responsibility which helps keeps sewer service charges low.
  • Continue to invest in up-to-date technologies that identify sewer lines needing repair or replacement avoiding future problems in the system.
  • Create and approve policies that support continued education of staffs' knowledge of their jobs while enforcing required safety regulations.
