My Top 3 Priorities

  • Continue setting policy, overseeing the finances and doing strategic planning that has resulted in the two most cost effective utilities that CM residents enjoy with trash at $18 and sewer at $9 per month respectively
  • Maintain the agency transparency certification awarded by the State Special Districts Association.
  • Maintain the agency debt free status including having no pension or benefit unfunded retirement system unfunded liability, which allows us to maintain the very low trash/sewer fees
