The district has hired an independent consultant, Brent Ives, principal of BHI Management Consulting, to run the meetings. Ives will gather input from district staff, board members and residents and prepare a report for the district’s board.
“A strategic plan is a roadmap that serves to focus our energies and invest our resources into the future,” District Manager Jim Mueller said in a prepared statement. “The purpose of these meetings is to actively solicit ideas from our community to create a realistic roadmap for the district over the next five years.”
Mueller said the meeting is open to those in the district who want to give their opinions and thoughts about the district’s future. Any topic connected with that subject is on the table.
The board will see a draft of the report in about two months and is scheduled to consider approving the plan in November.
