As you can see (assuming you watched the meeting) I've asked for a couple more items from staff, information that I think will help us make better decisions. I think it's important for us to see a breakdown of what each function of the refuse enterprise is operating at and not lump it all together. In order for us to have a clear picture of what services are sustaining themselves and what areas are not, and for those that aren't, how much is that difference? My goal in this approach is for us to avoid ending up in another situation where we had some functions of the enterprise subsidizing other functions of the enterprise, and when changes were made that were beyond our control, the reserve fund took a huge hit. An enterprise fund is required to be self-sustaining and that includes planning for future capital, operating and maintenance expenses, as well as potential environmental changes. As always please contact me at Carolyn.Umphrey@SierraVistaAZ.gov with any comments or questions. I love hearing from you!
