Fussing and Fighting
for the Community?
BY DORMAN OTTE, OTTE CONSULTING
in the Same Sandbox or
TOO MANY TIMES, water utilities seem to be concerned with “self preservation” rather than focusing on cooperation and vision. This leads to “fussing and fighting in the sandbox” rather than “working together as a community” for stability and growth. Unfortunately this happens with both rural water districts (RWDs) and cities. For this article, my reference to “community” means a county, multiple cities, the rural area or an encompassing trade area.
