The Bryan Board of Public Affairs approved a strategic plan for Bryan Municipal Utilities during its year-end session on Dec. 31 and the plan is now available to the public on the BMU website.
BMU officials said the 14-page plan, which is for 2019 through 2022, is the first of its kind for BMU in more than 20 years.
BMU Director of Utilities Kevin Maynard said the plan was approved with some changes to the language in the initial draft based on elected officials’ concerns that the draft could be construed as indicating that BMU and Bryan City Council were not in accord on certain issues.
In addition to identifying strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats for BMU, the plan also provides an updated mission, vision and values as determined by the strategic planning team. Creation of the plan was facilitated by Hometown Connections, a Denver-based non-profit that provides services and guidance to public power utilities providers.
“Using the 2019-2022 Strategic Plan as its guide, BMU will pursue the technology improvements, customer service programs, human resources policies and financial management strategies that will enable BMU to chart a course for a successful long- term future,” states a portion of the plan.
The plan is available online at http://www.cityofbryan.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/BMU-STRATEGIC-PLAN_2018.12.31.pdf.
