April 6, 2010    Budgets for Small Water Utilities:
The budget is an important financial tool needed to successfully operate a small public water system. Does your income cover your operating expenses? Do you have O&M reserves? Do you have emergency reserves? And what about capital improvement reserves to replace your aging infrastructure? It’s imperative for water systems to develop a realistic and comprehensive budget prior to setting rates. This workshop will assist you in understanding how to develop and use a comprehensive budget and the importance of funding reserve accounts. We’ll show you how this tool relates to other financial documents and the importance of customer policies to support the budget.
