Water is a business! City Council and rural water district boards have a lot to consider: water pressure, meeting all federal and state regulations and standards, and making rates affordable. In fact, their job is making the right choices about complex managerial, financial, and technical aspects of running a high quality water utility. Yes, it takes time to keep up on the laws, regulations, and rules. However, as a board/council member, you are personally responsible. Water is the foundation of your community’s jobs and future.

Like any business, there are risks and options, but is your board/council keeping them in mind? Boards/Councils need to know the pros and cons concerning your managerial, financial, and technical decision about water. That is why KanCap, a component of the Kansas Capacity Development Program, was established by the state of Kansas. KanCap is designed to be an educational tool to assist board/council members in operating their water business.

Training is approved for 0.7 point CMC Experience or 0.7 point MMC Advanced Education for city clerks.
