Community Roundtable – Addressing New Challenges from COVID-19

by | Jun 4, 2020 | By State, Education, Financial Shock, General Videos, Oregon, Videos, Water Solutions

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought new challenges to local and utility leaders. 

How do you keep the utilities running, ensure the safety of your employees and residents, or hold public meetings in the social distancing era?  There’s no one-size-fits-all solution, so where do you find resources you need to address these unique problems?  How do Public-Private Partnerships fit in and how can you leverage them to help?

We assembled a panel of professionals in a free community roundtable discussion on how to address these obstacles in the time of COVID-19. Our speakers:

Mayor Vince Williams of Union City, GA and 2nd Vice President of National League of Cities

Mayor Eileen Weir, Independence, MO

Michael Cully, Executive Director, League of Oregon Cities

Deputy Mayor Steve Schaefer, Evansville, IN

Michael Armstrong, General Manager, WaterOne

Doug Lanzo, Sr. Owner, Lanzo Plumbing

Topics include:

  • The importance of keeping utility services running
  • Aggregation of Resources
  • Leveraging P3’s to manage through crises like Covid-19
  • The go-forward state of public meetings
  • Protecting your employees, customers and residents
