2004 APWA Streets and Sewer Conference
Performance Budgeting. Not Just for Accountants!
In this session, Harry Lorick outlined how performance measures and budgeting can be applied to Public Works in a real and practical way from both a Public Works agency manager and a consultant's point of view. Harry is an agency manager with hands-on background from a Public Works prospective and described the why and how this tool was used with actual tangible benefits. The consultant will describe experiences and uses in applying such tools at various California agencies, including small and large cities and counties. The session provides practical ideas of how this can be applied to your agency in a real and useable way as a directional tool for Public Works, not just to meet a new management initiative.
