Ten-Year Vision of Oro Loma Sanitary District
Safety is paramount.
We will maintain a safety program, safety culture, safe work habits and safe work record to reflect our practice of proactive risk identification and mitigation, and commitment to safely completing our work.
Our staff remains our key asset.
Despite anticipated attrition, we will practice deliberate knowledge transfer, keep the selection of extraordinary team players as our norm, foster an environment to promote professional development, and offer an appropriate compensation package.
Shaping and responding to new regulation gives us a competitive advantage.
We will perform sound planning, engage with the regulatory community, and innovate as we select on optimal response to significant emerging regulations.
Not all new technologies are worth our investment.
We will scrutinize available technologies and implement only those that increase our standard for operational resiliency while meeting our high standards for investment of public funds.
Measured risk taking is a part of sound management.
We will continue to take prudent business risks that improve the District’s ability to respond to future challenges while maintaining our fiscal strength.
The public expects us to manage with the long term in mind.
We will maintain a comprehensive understanding of our service and infrastructure needs and provide proper funding to manage their ongoing renewal.
Proactive communication is essential to providing the best service.
We will identify issues of public concern and communicate our approach to addressing these issues well in advance of any requirement for significant immediate action.
Excellence over average performance.
We will set the standard for operational resiliency, regulatory compliance, and cost efficient operations among sanitary agencies in the State.
